Growing Starlight 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

Equally good in a pot or a border Hebe Starlight would be a handsome addition to a white-themed scheme, alongside Nicotiana sylvestris, Margaret Merril roses, and Dahlia Cafe au Lait Supreme.

The grey-green leaves and creamy flowers are a natural companion for Convolvulus cneorum either together or side by side in containers. It is an excellent partner for our Regal White Cottage Garden collection.
