What are the plants in the photo please. I think the one on left in the second is the same as the first. Is the right one in second heather?

They look really nice and i want to get some for ground cover. So I would appreciate if someone could tell me what they are. Thanks

The first looks like Hebe boughton dome

The second picture: the top one looks like Hebe Pingufolia

And Yes!! beneath that it a heather (summer flowering)..

If im right, all 3 plants grow about 60cm in width and 40cm high

They make for good evergreen ground cover, but the hebes can be damaged in bad frosts
