Hello, all,

Can anyone tell me what this is? Many thanks in advance, hope you've got good weather wherever you areimage.


  • Could it be a Hebe,? Not sure which.

    If it is a Hebe, then possibly Red Edge

    It looks very much like a hebe, but there's an outside chance it could be a euphorbia. If you break a leaf off and there's no milky sap (keep it off your skin) then more likely a hebe. Milky sap then euphorbia (spurge)

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    It's not a euphorbia, I think it's hebe but it's not the one I grew as Red Edge, that was more blue/grey with a red edge. This is more red/purple all over

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Hewge thanks to everyone for your replies, very much appreciated (still a newbie at this) Marnix

  • It looks like Hebe Caledonia, but there are so many different types this is just a shot in the dark.

    might be worth a look at some pictures of this type.
