    Hi-
    I was hoping to get help on identifying these 2 shrubs. I am guessing the grey leaf one may be a Hebe? Any help would be much appreciated! they are both located in full sun in seattle.
    thank you in advance!

    The gray one might be Veronica pimeleoides 'Quicksilver'. It used to be called Hebe. Hebe has been sunk into Veronica.
