Named for the Goddess of Youth, Hebes are easy-to-grow, evergreen shrubs that are a firm favourite with gardeners. Originally from New Zealand, these are long-flowering and very compact-growing, providing interest all year round from both foliage and summer flowers, in borders or patio containers. Remove old blooms to encourage the plants to continue blooming right up to the first frosts. Hardy in most parts of the UK (to -5°C). Height 60-70cm; spread 60-70cm. Supplied in an 11cm pot. Emma - Attractive racemes of purple flowers.
