Shrubby veronica

Pure white flower cluster

An exciting new hebe with slender stems and small fresh green, evergreen leaves growing to only 60cm (2ft). In summer and autumn the plant is covered with short spikes of pure white flowers creating a sparkling effect. These are carried on the tips of the shoots creating an exceptionally colourful display. The blooms are loved by bees and butterflies. A hardy hebe, perfect for any small garden and brilliant for summer containers.

Where?

Plant in full sun or semi shade in a sheltered situation in a bed or border. Perfect for a pot on the patio, balcony or in a courtyard.

How?

Any well-drained fertile soil that is not too dry. Best pruned in spring, cutting back to where new shoots are emerging lower down in the shrub. This is only necessary on older plants.

Hailing from New Zealand hebes hate hot, dry situations

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.

Planting site Cottage garden, Informal garden, Flower border and beds, Patio container, City garden, Banks and slopes, Coastal or drought resistant
