Hebes are popular evergreen shrubs, suitable for growing in a range of sites and planting schemes. They are excellent in shrub borders, used as ground cover or low-growing hedging, and are relatively low-maintenance. Hebe flowers come in a range of colours including pink, blue and white. Less hardy types can be grown in cool glass or alpine houses and some varieties are even used to decorate rock gardens.
Hebe ‘Nicola’s Blush’ has dark green, lance-shaped leaves with red margins, which turn purple in winter. The flowers open pink and soften to white as they mature. For best results grow Hebe ‘Nicola’s Blush’ in full sun to partial shade, in moist but well-drained soil. Prune back in mid to late spring if desired.
