Hebe 'Heartbreaker'

Hebe 'Heartbreaker'

Hebe ‘Heartbreaker’ is a colourful but compact evergreen shrub, popular for its bright and cheery, pink-flushed leaves in winter. From spring through to autumn, the slender leaves are an attractive grey-green with cream edge on upward bearing stems.  Although it is mostly grown for its colourful foliage, Hebe ‘Heartbreaker’ also produces lavender-coloured flowers in long-stemmed clusters between June and August which are popular with bees and butterflies.

Hebe ‘Heartbreaker’ is a slow-growing, mound-forming shrub reaching only around 50-80cm height and spread. Preferring a sheltered location in full sun or partial shade, this pretty shrub will grow happily in any soil type providing it is moist and well-drained.

Wonderfully versatile and easy to grow, Hebe ‘Heartbreaker’ looks best planted at the edge of beds and borders or in pots to brighten up the patio. It needs little maintenance other than a quick tidy up and feed in early spring.
