Hebe Green Globe

Shrubby Veronica

Dwarf neat ball shaped variety with masses of white flowers

Dressed in moss green foliage all year long, Hebe Green Globe is a favourite rock garden fixture not just for its tiny emerald green leaf ovals but also for its summer treat of white flowers.

Where?

This hardy shrub can be planted in well-drained soil with full or partial sun. Take cuttings during the flowering period of July-August to replant. While it grows in all soil types, it prefers a bit of clay to thrive.

How?

This low maintenance Green Globe can be planted in containers and on patio pots that dot your garden.

Its bushy dome shape makes it an ideal plant to grow in groups to cover larger spaces of your garden.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
