Small mound-forming Hebes tend to be hardier than larger varieties, and make very attractive neat plants for edging or grouping at the front of borders they also grow well in containers. Plants flower best in full sun, with some humus such as compost worked in to prevent roots becoming too dry. 'James Stirling' is a dense dwarf variety, with glossy stems, almost upright and tightly packed with minimal leaves. This characteristic is shared by several Hebes with a conifer-like appearance described as whipcord. Plants of this kind are not usually pruned.
