Description

Hebe Marshmallow Plants. 2 Litre Pots

Marshmallow has evergreen, glaucous foliage with a faint blue hue that is more apparent in autumn and winter, held on deep burgundy stems. The subtle flowers in early summer start off the palest of pinks and mature to white. It is a delightfully compact shrub, upright to about 60cm high by 60cm wide.

Hebes are only delivered pot-grown, year round.

Growing Marshmallow 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

Ideal for giving a zip of colour to a predominantly white border or dotting amongst tulips such as the beautifully-fringed, pink Huis Ten Bosch and or the pointy 'Green Star' in a spring garden. Try also Tulip 'China Town' or the 'Lady Jane'.
