I love Hebes Kate, so easy to grow and I have a few that I can propagate from
I will also check out figrat's options and certainly propagate the Vb. I have this in two locations in my garden and I'm lucky to have a large selection of shrubs and perennials that I can make more from (already eyeing up my Euphorbia characias subsp. wulfenii in the opposite border because I like repeats and wave plantings.
I've always wanted a smoke bush but didn't have a location before now, so maybe one of those.
The really daunting part is making the right choices with the bones, because those are this things you have to live with and work the rest around. I think if you get the bones right, the rest comes with time.
Making my mind up will be the hardest part.
