Plant details

There are about 100 different species of hebes, the popular evergreen shrubs, and many more cultivars created for use in gardens, as they are suitable for a range of sites. Used in shrub borders, ground cover or hedging, flowers come in a range of colours from pinks, to blues and whites. 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.

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