Design IdeasHebes are excellent front yard foundation plants that look great in every season. Use in quantity to create low naturalistic hedges or lightly clip for semi-formal appearance. Use in masses evenly spaced for uniform, low maintenance ground coverage. Superior color for mixed beds and borders that need glossy foliage for in between flowering seasons. A fine choice for small urban gardens where beauty of this shrub will be most appreciated. Equally suited for pots and troughs as well as square boxes in modernistic compositions.
