Hebe’s are famous and known for their mound forming and the nicola blush is no exception to this. Thanks to its comparatively longer flowering season, the green leaves are accompanied by white and pink flowers which look even more beautiful in reality. A very interesting fact about the name of this Hebe, is that it is called ‘’Nicola’s blush’’ because of an assistant in the nursery who blushed during conversations.
