Hebe pinguifolia 'Sutherlandii'
Pronunciation: HEE-bee pin-gwee-FOH-lee-a
|Description||Spikes of white flowers with blue anthers accent the white-green foliage of this densely branched dwarf shrub. The low spreading form is excellent for use as a groundcover, low-growing edging, or container plantings. One of the hardiest of hebes. Thrives in coastal regions. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 10 to 18 in. tall, 24 to 36 in. wide.|
|Special Features||Easy Care, Compact Form|
|Flower Attributes||Flowers for Cutting, Showy Flowers|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge, Ground Cover, Edging|
|Design Ideas||A stylish small spreading groundcover for high profile parts of the garden. Use around porch and front entry to cloak slab edges and fill in under taller shrubs. Useful for foundation planting under very low windows that need vent of footing cover up. Insert into the front of mixed borders for unique form and tidy edges. A fine choice for small urban gardens where close up beauty of this little shrub will be most appreciated. Equally suited for pots and troughs as well as square boxes in modernistic compositions.|
|Companion Plants||Podocarpus (Podocarpus macrophyllus); Heavenly Bamboo (Nandina); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Agapanthus (Agapanthus); Bottlebrush (Callistemon); Loropetalum (Loropetalum); Blue Oat Grass (Heliotrichon)|
|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.|
