Hardiness Zone Map


This charming, New Zealand evergreen subshrub is ideal for intimate garden spaces, filling in and blending with many other types of plants. In early summer, the tidy fine textured mound of thin wine-colored branches and tiny, dark green glossy leaves is completely whitened by spires of delicate blossoms, each centered with a pink-ringed chartreuse eye.

Blooms JuneľAugust

Size: 12" high x 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 7.

<i>Parahebe catarractae (lavender form)</i>

After just one close glance at its dainty upright clusters of petite, lilac-hued flowers set off by magenta-streaked petals and white and crimson centers, you’ll find this adorable plant hard to resist. Small oval leaves, lustrous and prominently toothed, neatly line wine-hued stems, fashioning a dwarf low spreading mound that can be situated amid Heuchera ‘Weston Pink’ and Geranium ‘Melinda’.

Blooms June – September

Size: 12" high x 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 8.

<i>Parahebe linifolia</i>

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' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 8.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
