Cultivation

The plant likes to be in half shade or sun . It will need  regular water as the soil must not dry out.

Regularly fertilize manure , eg limestone bone meal and protect the plant in heavy frost. Plants are best planted in potting soil.

Hebes cope with most soil types, and can be propagated easily from both seed and cuttings

Their ability to withstand salt-laden winds makes them especially suited to coastal areas, for instance the South West of England, where they are often grown as hedges. However, they are mostly half-hardy, so will not thrive in regions subject to prolonged freezing temperatures
