Ah, while this hebe survived the wet snow winter of '08 (and in a pot!), it has not escaped the dry cold winter of '09 (in the ground!). In mid-December we dipped into the teens and 20's with absolutely dry conditions, and come spring, my little hebe is fried. Not dead though, but certainly not quite the trooper I saw last spring at this time. It still has new green growth at the top of the mound. Time will tell if that is enough for it to rebound.
