Hebe ‘Wiri Charm’

NZ Gardener - - IN SEASON -

Hebe is the largest genus of na­tive plants; nearly all 100 or so species oc­cur here and nowhere else. The tight clus­ters of flow­ers oc­cur from spring to late sum­mer. Some species, such as the com­mon white roadside shrub Hebe sali­ci­folius, pro­vide nec­tar over a long pe­riod. Hebes are a spe­cially good but­ter­fly plant and all the dif­fer­ent cul­ti­vars – from ground­cov­ers to small trees – are great for pol­li­na­tors.
