Hebe 'Silver Queen'

Hebe elliptica 'Variegata', Hebe x franciscana 'Variegata'


Hebe 'Silver Queen' is a bushy, spreading evergreen shrub forming a dense mound of broadly elliptic, dark green leaves with wide and irregular creamy-white margins. In summer, short spikes of purple flowers appear on the tips of the branches. Attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds, they are stunning in combination with the variegated foliage. However the main contribution of this evergreen shrub is its brightly colored foliage throughout the year. A great choice as a specimen plant, a low hedge or the mixed border.
