Pattern of the DAY

Hebe rakaiensis is sturdy and a stalwart evergreen small shrub that can behave in the box ball manner.  Standing in  for a less harsh form of topiary, the fresh green leaves grabbed my attention yesterday.  It’s a good shrub for the small garden but needs to be kept pruned so that it doesn’t go leggy.  A good accent in a planting plan and as here,  stands the test when you go up close and peer in.
