Hebe - Cultivation Notes

This variegated Hebe is an attractive and versatile shrub that tolerates a variety of soils just as long as they are not to wet. Ideally plant in full or part sun in a sheltered spot - possibly in a tub or pot. Don't be put off by the ubiquity of these no fuss shrubs; the reason gardeners like Hebes is because they are reliable and they look great. There is a Hebe for most locations, just avoid planting in exposed areas, or wet soils in full shade.
