Hebe Plants for Sale

The Best Ornamental Hebe Varieties

Hebes are attractive, flowering, low evergreen edging plants that do well in containers and thrive in sunny coastal sites. They are hardy, but not recommended for borders in colder inland and Northern parts of Scotland, where the cold tends to damage the foliage. 

They make an informal alternative to box or lavender edging, giving you flowers and foliage on a naturally compact bush that only needs a quick clipping once a year. 

Hebes, native to New Zealand, are still known to many as shrubby Veronicas, but that name was retired for other species in 1929 by the botanists Leonard Cockayne and H H Allen. More recent analyses show that Hebes are indeed part of the Veronica genus, which the Royal Horticultural Society officially recognises, but after almost a century it would be too awkward to go back with the name now! 
The Hebe Society, founded in 1985, is affiliated with the RHS, and the New Zealand Alpine Garden Society. It is an excellent resource on all sorts of New Zealand plants, and maintains a list of national collections you can visit, such as The Douglas Chalk Collection at Plumpton College in East Sussex.

Hebe herself is the daughter of Zeus and Hera, first of the younger gods, entrusted by her Olympian parents with serving their ambrosia, and who became the afterlife wife of Heracles after personally ferrying his soul up to their realm.
She embodies the association between youthfulness and the restorative fruit of forgiveness: these plants are not that long-lived, therefore they are always young, and they are very "forgiving" - easy to propagate continually from cuttings.
