Veronica' Red Edge' hedge (Hebe 'Red Edge') description

With warm, colourful foliage and pretty flowers, Veronica Red Edge is a great choice for informal garden settings. Ideally suited to naturally shaped curves and mounds rather than formal shapes, Red Edge is a great choice for attractive, low maintenance garden hedging. Veronica Red Edge is very good in coastal positions as it is particularly tolerant to salt laden air. It prefers a sunny site, with moist but well-drained, normal soil. However, it is best to keep Hebe 'Red Edge' sheltered; avoiding bitter winds.
