Butterflies & bees
Hebe blooms in clusters of white, purple or pink flowers. Flowers with long stamens which give the flower a 'dreamy' look. We're not the only ones to love its flowers; butterflies and bees also adore them. Hebe is a fantastic plant in the garden that we really enjoy finding out about more.
The evergreen shrubs are becoming ever more popular, because they can tolerate the cold and light frost much better than they used to. If the winter is really cold, you can protect them by wrapping them in fleece or bubble wrap, particularly if they're in containers.
Hebe is available between mid-July and October. The greatest range is available in August.
interesting fact: In Greek mythology Hebe is the goddess of youth. She symbolises the blooming of nature and spring and provides nectar to the gods to ensure eternal life...
