I submitted this photo as Hebe carnosula or Veronica carnosula if we have to change from Hebe.

it has now become Veronica peregrina subsp. peregrina, which has no likeness to this Hebe.

V. carnosula was reclassified as a synonym for V. peregrina subsp. peregrina. These taxonomic decisions are based on DNA rather than on external appearance.

I can move your photos to V. baylyi if you wish. As of 28 September 2016, V. laevis var. carnosula is its only synonym.

Hebe (Veronica baylyi)

It is sad that Hebe no longer exists, I agree. I've moved the photos.
