Description

Hebe 'Pink Princess' Plants. 2 Litre Pots

Hebe ‘Pink Princess’ is a compact and evergreen shrub with unusual multi-coloured foliage. Its leaves change between cream, green, pink and purple throughout the year, providing four seasons of interest.

Brilliant low-maintenance feature in rockeries and borders. It can also be used to edge paths and as a low informal hedge. It's ideal for urban gardens and will happily grow in large patio pots.

A recent introduction that’s worth getting to know as it gives such good value. It provides year round foliage interest courtesy of its pale variegated leaves that change colour over the seasons. Its new shoots are a gorgeous deep pink, and make it look like the bush is flowering. A useful plant for lighting up a dull corner. 

Hebes are only delivered pot-grown, year round.

Growing Pink Princess 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

‘Pink Princess’ hebe is ideal for low-maintenance schemes and gravel gardens. Team with drought tolerant plants that will chime with its pinky hues. Echinacea ‘Cosy’, Lavender ‘Regal Splendour', Gaura ‘Gaudi Rose’ and Cistus ‘Grayswood Pink’ would make lovely choices and create a scheme brimming with colour, movement and texture.
