Hebe speciosa ‘Variegata’ is an upright, rounded, evergreen shrub forming a mound of slender, gray-green leaves with irregular creamy-white margins. In summer, pretty spikes of violet-purple flowers appear on the tips of the branches, eventually smothering the shrub. They are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.
Most hebes thrive in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade, ideally in a sheltered spot protected from winds. They don’t need rich soils and will tolerate drought. Deadhead spent blooms to improve the look of your hebe and keep it flowering for longer.
