HEBE

Commonly known as Shrubby veronica

All Flower JUN-OCT

Genus of about 100 species of evergreen shrubs from a wide variety of habitats ranging from rocky sites and cliffs to scrub and grassland.

They are found from coastal areas to mountain regions, mainly in New Zealand, but also in S. E. Australia, New Guinea and South America.

Can be used as hedging and ground cover in milder, coastal areas and are good container subjects. The "whipcord" types are ideal for rock gardens.

Butterflies are attracted to the tubular flowers in shades of white to pink, blue, purple or red.
