Product Information

The Hebe is one out the most recognised shrubs, grown in garden and public areas everywhere because or its versatility, hardiness and ease of care.

A wonderfully compact variety, ‘Raspberry Ripple’ may be small, but it still puts on a magnificent display with its colourful foliage and blooms providing interest for most of the year, and it’s recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' as the flowers and are a favourite with butterflies and bees too!

The young leaves emerge a lovely, warm deep crimson colour, before gradually turning to deep glossy green as they mature, making the plant look amazing even before it begins to flower. From June to September, burgundy red buds open to racemes of the most fabulous rich pink flowers that slowly fade to white from the bottom to the top as they age.

An incredibly versatile little Hebe, ‘Raspberry Ripple’ is ideal for planting at the front of border or in patio pots and makes a superb low-growing flowering hedge, or edging for flowers beds.

Care Information

Planting Advise

  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball then water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you’re planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

Pruning

  • Prune immediately after flowering for a second flush of flowers later in the season.
  • Remove damaged or crowded stems.
  • Renovate plants by cutting back by half in spring.
  • After pruning, apply a generous layer of well-rotted compost to the base of the plant.
