Description

Hebe topiaria description

Creamy flowers in the summer.

Many Hebe’s have a bad habit of the foliage falling open, but this is really compact and forms solid, evergreen growth.
As the common name suggests, it can be used for topiary – it regenerates very well from old wood.

A pollinator friendly plant including bees.
This is a butterfly friendly plant.
Good for wildlife in general.
Can tolerate a coastal aspect with a certain amount of salt laden air.
