If I had a dime for every time I’ve thought about buying Hebe pimeleoides 'Quicksilver' this one (and three or four more just like it), would have been free!
Seriously. What’s been the problem? I’m hardly a person who purchases only what’s “on the list.” In fact I’d say 98% of the plants in my garden were impulse/opportunistic purchases. And this plant isn't expensive, small ones go for under $10. So why have I picked up and put down this particular plant over and over and over again?
And why did I finally buy it? Dunno. But I’m glad I did. In fact I LOVE…L O V E it. The tiny silver/blue leaves on dark, almost black, stems are the perfect foil for the big spiky/strappy foliage in my garden. Maybe I need a couple more…
My advice to you about that plant you keep thinking about buying…just buy the darn plant already!
