Hebe 'Magic Summer' is a dwarf, compact, bushy, evergreen shrub with variegated, lance-shaped, grey-green leaves and creamy-white margins. New shots emerge with reddish-purple flush. The spikes of tiny, lavender-blue flowers bloom from summer to autumn and are attractive to bees and butterflies. Hebe 'Magic Summer' is very easy to grow. It prefers poor to moderately fertile, slightly alkaline to neutral, moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun or partial shade. It can withstand frost but needs to be sheltered from harsh, drying winter winds. Tolerant of urban pollution and coastal conditions. No serious pest or disease problems. Low maintenance plant, requires minimal pruning. Hebe 'Magic Summer' is a tough, adaptable shrub great for informal, cottage, urban, and coastal gardens. Excellent for beds and borders, under-planting of shrubs and roses, or as a groundcover. Good for low hedges and rock and gravel gardens. Suitable for growing in pots and containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
