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.
