Hebe 'Frozen Flame'

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 ‘Frozen Flame’ bears greyish green leaves with a white edge, that turn a pinkish-purple in winter and in summer, and blue flowers, borne in bright clusters. For best results grow Hebe ‘Frozen Flame’ in full sun to partial shade, in moist but well-drained soil. Prune back in mid to late spring if desired.

I have this in clay soil in full Sun. It does well but suffers with hard frost.
