The Hebe is one out the most recognised shrubs, grown in garden and public areas everywhere because or its versatility, hardiness and ease of care.
A wonderfully compact variety, ‘Raspberry Ripple’ may be small, but it still puts on a magnificent display with its colourful foliage and blooms providing interest for most of the year, and it’s recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' as the flowers and are a favourite with butterflies and bees too!
The young leaves emerge a lovely, warm deep crimson colour, before gradually turning to deep glossy green as they mature, making the plant look amazing even before it begins to flower. From June to September, burgundy red buds open to racemes of the most fabulous rich pink flowers that slowly fade to white from the bottom to the top as they age.
An incredibly versatile little Hebe, ‘Raspberry Ripple’ is ideal for planting at the front of border or in patio pots and makes a superb low-growing flowering hedge, or edging for flowers beds.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant and growing to a height and spread of 30cm (1ft).
