Compact and evergreen

It can be cut into a decorative shape according to taste without hesitation. In addition, the Hebe plant is absolutely easy to care for and undemanding.
Ideal as a balcony planting or as a ground-covering plant in the garden
The variety 'Green Globe' fits almost every garden or balcony. The small and compact hebe is an ideal ground cover in beds and borders, but can also be cultivated as a single plant in a pot. If several plants are planted, they form an attractive green carpet after only a short time. On the balcony or terrace, it stands out in particular because of its spherical growth and the lush, fine foliage and provides a decorative contrast to flowering planting partners in summer.
