If you are looking for a low maintenance but stylish hedge for your driveway, this might be the one! Combine these 3 award-winning plants: the evergreen neat domes of Shrubby Veronica (Hebe rakaiensis), with the architectural and diaphanous veils of airy Golden Oats (Stipa gigantea) and the graceful sweeps of misty blue-purple flowers of Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia). And enjoy!

All plants have won prestigious awards.
