Hebe 'Britta' - Hardy plant

Hebe 'Britta'
An eye-catching Hebe!
This is a lovely, shrubby veronica (Hebe) 'Donna' with glossy dark leaves. From August, the plant will be flourishing with pretty plumes of around 7 cm long. These plants are not entirely hardy but add lots of colour in the autumn. Hebe looks great in large pots and planters on the patio or decking and of course, the border is also another option. Shrubby Veronica (Hebe) 'Donna' will easily survive a mild winter but will thank you for some frost protection in order to bring you lovely plumes next year again...

Planting+

Plant your Hebe immediately upon receipt, in pots or planters, or in the garden. If you want your shrubby veronica as a pot plant use a large one with holes in the base. Layer the base with potsherds or hydro-pellets. Add fresh potting compost and plant the Hebe at the right depth. Fill the pot with more potting compost and press well in. Water generously immediately. Stand the pot in full sun. A porous pot is best lined with plastic, or just use a plastic pot - it all helps to prevent evaporation of the plant's water. If planting in the garden, improve your soil with the addition of some potting compost.

Hebe in the garden

The very pretty, evergreen foliage on a Hebe makes it a lovely addition to any border. Goes wonderfully well with white forsythia (Abeliophyllum distichum) or an American Lila (Ceanothus pallidus) 'Marie Simon'. Great in amongst the heather in a bed too.

Care+

The leaves on this unusual, shrubby veronica have creamy margins. The young leaves are tinted with a strikingly bright pink. The whole plant becomes a pink glow in the winter. This ensures that the evergreen hebe is very decorative throughout the year. Shrubby Veronica is an ideal plant for the border and also a great plant for pots and planters on the patio.
