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. Although they tolerate shade, plants flower best in full sun, and must have well-drained soil with some humus such as compost worked in to prevent the roots from becoming too dry. 'Red Edge' is a popular dense shrub with neat blue- or grey-green fleshy leaves, with a fine edge of red which is especially noticeable in winter, and light mauve or lilac flowers. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
