HEBE ‘HEART­BREAKER’

Garden Answers (UK) - - Celebrate -

This re­cent in­tro­duc­tion is a fab­u­lous chameleon. It’s a com­pact, ev­er­green shrub with nar­row green leaves edged with cream that take on strik­ing pink tones as tem­per­a­tures drop in win­ter. Bot­tle­brush-like, mauve-coloured flow­ers ap­pear in sum­mer and are loved by bees. Neat mounds of fo­liage make it an ideal plant for con­tain­ers. It’s not frost-hardy so will need pro­tec­tion over win­ter. Plant in full sun in moist, fer­tile soil with good drainage. H and S60cm (2ft)
