Description

Hebe 'Bouquet' Plants. 2 Litre Pots

Hebe ‘Bouquet’ is a compact, easy-going shrub that’s ideal for beginners. Bees and butterflies adore its pretty purple flowers in the summer while its glossy foliage gives year round interest.

An attractive low-maintenance addition to rockeries and borders. It can also be used as a ground cover plant and on banks and slopes to prevent erosion. Somewhat tolerant of pollution, it's great for urban gardens too and will happily grow in containers.

Like a well-behaved house-guest. It’s a tidy evergreen shrub that doesn’t demand too much attention while bringing colour and interest into the garden. Flowering from June to September, its pretty blooms are purple, fading to lilac. The lance shaped leaves are dark green and glossy, purple when young. ‘Bouquet’ fits in well to most situations and, if kept as a tightly clipped ball, makes a good alternative to box (although this will be at the expense of flowers).

Hebes are only delivered pot-grown, year round.

Growing Bouquet Hebes

Suitable for any well-drained soil, they tolerate partial shade well. They are hardy across most of the UK, but in cold areas of the North and Scotland, they are best grown in pots that can be moved into shelter from dry winter winds. In other areas outside the South West, covering them during an extended period of frost or snow is recommended to prevent cosmetic damage, but not essential.

Hebes prefer poor soil, so do not add any of our rich composts to the soil before planting: sand would be better in most normal topsoils. In heavy clay soil, churn the ground over to add a bit of gravel & grit (not sand) to give their roots breathing space, likewise add grit to a planting mix for Hebes in pots.

They don't like being hard pruned, so give them a light trim in spring to keep them tight and bushy. If you need to tidy a stray stem, prune it back as little as possible, to a good-looking bud.

In Your Garden Design

Use in an easy-care gravel garden with other drought tolerant plants like grasses, gaura, lavender, salvia and cistus.
It makes a useful evergreen ‘anchor’ in an informal cottage style border among spring bulbs and herbaceous perennials, or clipped into a formal ball to punctuate a contemporary scheme.
