Hebe ‘Turk­ish De­light’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

Striped and pur­ple-leafed va­ri­eties of hebe abound in Europe so why are so few of them avail­able here in their right­ful home of New Zealand? Beats me. ‘Turk­ish De­light’ is a nat­u­ral sport from the not-quiteso-pur­ple but reli­able cul­ti­var ‘Mrs Win­der’. It popped up in the Waikato in 2002 and turns a lovely black­ish colour in the win­ter. The dainty sum­mer flow­ers are mauve-blue.
