Hebe youngii HIGHLAND JUBILEE `Ruthie Gray'


Hebe HIGHLAND JUBILEE is an attractive compact and hardy variegated shrub found in Scotland. It is a sport of Hebe Carl Teschner, also a very hardy shrub.  It grows well in patio containers and in the ground. Its all year colour and neat compact growing habit make it easy to maintain. Only a little light pruning is required after flowering. New growth begins with tinged pink - red shoot tip and matures to a lovely cream and grey green variation.  The lilac blue flowers in mid - late summer contrast very well with the overall effect.
