Hebe 'Paula'

Plant details

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 ‘Paula’ is a round, evergreen shrub that bears narrow, glossy leaves with reddish new growth. The flowers open on dense racemes, in a bold pink-purple colour, but fade as they get older. For best results grow Hebe ‘Paula’ in full sun to partial shade, in moist but well-drained soil. Prune back in mid to late spring if desired.
