Purple Mist Parahebe

Parahebe perfoliata

This sun-loving plant sports beautiful blue-gray foliage reminiscent of eucalyptus. Purple Mist Parahebe lies somewhere between a shrub and groundcover, with long stems that gently arch out from the center, making it a fabulous border or rock garden addition.

I’ve sited mine next to our driveway at the end of a planting bed where it can soften the transition to an adjacent mulched area. This is a dry, part-sun location. Parahebe prefers full sun so I’m curious how it will perform. A Great Plant Pick for the Pacific Northwest.
