Design Ideas Hebes 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.

Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Russian Sage (Perovskia); White Sage (Artemisia); False Heather (Cuphea): Coral Bells (Heuchera); Lilyturf (Liriope); New Zealand Flax (Phormium)
CARE
Care Provide average, acidic, loose, well-drained soil; does not tolerate heavy, wet soils. Thrives in cool coastal areas; shelter from harsh sun exposures in hotter regions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize in early spring. For a semi-formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.
