Plant Combo Featuring Dwarf Iris and Hardy Hebe in Purple Tones

This easy care planting combination has strong year-round presence thanks to foliage structure provided by the slim form of the Italian cypress and the low mounding form of Hebe 'Pretty n Pink'. The scene is further enhanced by a spring through summer bloom sequence that commences with the dwarf bearded iris and carried into summer when the hebe is covered in panicles of pink blooms. The deep purple foliage of Hebe 'Pretty n Pink' is a perfect complement to blooms of Iris 'Yo-Yo'.
