Poking around the internet for inspiration, I stumbled across this rather fantastic windowbox idea. I think I can identify most of the plants in it, except for the purpley-green ones. At first I thought they might be some type of hebe, but they look much looser than that. Anyone have any ideas?

Windowbox Display garden

With hopes for spring in the one failed box.

    I don’t have any idea! But when you find out, I would love to know. That is a beautiful little plant! I also like the lavender “tree” too. :)

    Thanks for looking in on it, anyway, Tropicana (it’s always great to hear from you:) )! I will definitely let you know if someone comes up with a guess.

    It does look like a hebe to me… perhaps Hebe ‘Heartbreaker’? http://www.gardenbeauty.co.uk/hebe/hebe-page3.htm

    Thanks, Evergreen! I suspect that you are correct …. now if it was only available in the States. Someday. ::sigh::
