Hebes are compact evergreen shrubs which can have plain grey-green leaves or alternatively the leaves may have some variegation. Most varieties are smothered with small spikes of flowers throughout Summer. In addition, some varieties are categorised as dwarf or ground cover but these are usually grown for their colourful foliage. Hebes are moderately hardy so consider protecting plants in extreme weather conditions. Hebes are very tolerant and will grow in full sun or part shade in any reasonable garden soil.
