Hebe topiara - Cultivation Notes

Hebe prefers being planted in full sun, but will tolerate light shade and all but the toughest of garden soils - avoiding planting in very dry or wet soils. This Hebe would also suit being planted in a pot or container. Avoid planting in very exposed cold locations as Hebes can be tender. Trim in spring, removing leggy growth. Suited for planting in masses as low maintenance ground cover.
