Hebe Plant Care
Written by Dawn Hummel
|Plant Profile|| Hebe Plant Care Tips
• Rule of thumb: The larger the leaf, the more vulnerable the Hebe is to frost damage.
• Hebes prefer well-drained, slightly acidic soils.
• They are great additions to the landscape or in mixed container plantings. • Hebe’s are not susceptible to slugs or disease. Shrubs are virtually maintenance free.
• They loathe humidity, but love the sun and wind. The best-looking plants can tolerate the harshest wind-swept conditions.
• Hebes perform well in Oregon coastal conditions.
• When flowering, Hebes attract butterflies.
• Hebes reproduce easily from seed, softwood cuttings or layering.
