Graham Stuart Thomas referred to the Parahebes as ‘little treasures’, and once you get to know this charming New Zealand native you’ll see why. Forming an easygoing, dense semishrubby plant, princely pairs of serrated deep green leaves, polished and narrow, extend from reddish stems that respond well to pruning. Unbelievably profuse and long blooming, the tiny, white cupped flowers are a study in delicacy, each with a green eye and magenta ring, while populating loosely arranged terminal clusters.

Roses, Geranium ‘Orion’ and Hydrangea ‘Enziandom’ spill over an unshorn evergreen hedge of Parahebe linifolia in our garden for a flowery summer time gala.

Blooms June – October.

Size: 18"–2' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 8.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week. We love Euphorbia ‘Helen Robinson’ because while the rest of the garden looks like winter, this plant looks like spring! From the robbiae side of the family, this choice, stalwart Euphorbia inherits its compact stature, shade tolerance, and handsome, stout rosettes of blunt-tipped, dark green leaves; the characias side contributes the good-sized chartreuse flower heads. In our garden, it acccompanies Anchusa with a carpet of Corydalis ‘Pere David’ skirting beneath.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
