Hebe 'Silver Anniversary' Overview
Hebe 'Silver Anniversary' is a compact, mound-forming, evergreen shrub that produces narrow, silver-green, variegated leaves. These develop a purple hue in winter, providing interest during colder months. In summer, occasional purple flowers appear. Hebe 'Silver Anniversary' is a favourite with gardeners for its bright foliage throughout the winter months. Low-maintenance and drought tolerant, this popular cultivar is suitable for many different garden situations, including beds and borders, rock gardens and patio pots. Hebes prefer a slightly alkaline and not too fertile, well-drained soil, but they do like to be watered in the growing season if it's very dry. They like to be sheltered from cold, dry winds. In general however, they are a tolerant group of plants that withstand pollution well. Hebe 'Silver Anniversary' is protected under intellectual property laws by Plant Breeders' Rights. (These provide the breeder of new plants exclusive control over the plant material for a set amount of time.) Previously known as Hebe, these plants have been re-classified as being part of the Veronica genus and their name change was announced by NATAG (RHS Nomenclature and Taxonomy Advisory Group) in the December 2020 edition of The Plant Review.
