Hebe speciosa 'Variegata' is an upright, rounded, evergreen shrub forming a mound of slender, gray-green leaves with irregular creamy-white margins. Often purple-tinged when young, the foliage turns pinkish-purple in cold weather. In summer, pretty spikes of violet-purple flowers appear on the tips of the branches, eventually smothering the shrub. They are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. 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.

  • Typically grows up to 2-3 ft. tall and wide (60-90 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun or part shade in any well-drained soils.
  • Very versatile, this plant is perfect for banks and slopes, beds and borders or containers. Well suited to city gardens, coastal gardens or cottage gardens.
  • Rarely affected by pests or diseases, it requires little maintenance. Keep an eye out for aphids and downy mildew.
  • Needs little pruning.
  • Propagate by semi-ripe cuttings.
