Green Globe is a true gem among hebes. This variety, though relatively new to the market, has become one of the best-selling hebes ever. Its dominant feature is a deep but yet warm green colour of tiny, scaly leaves and mounding habit. This hebe does not flower. It can be used along garden pathways or as a dense, substantial ground-covering plant in beds and borders.

It grows slowly and requires no pruning. Still, it can easily be clipped and shaped in early spring after all frosts. When pruning make sure you cut the plant evenly on all sides.

Hebes need very well-drained but constantly moist, poor or medium fertile soil that is anything from slightly acidic to slightly alkaline. It needs good mulching at all times. They originate in New Zealand i.e. a country with high air humidity and mild winters so for our climate we only choose the hardies species and varieties which are mostly dwarf and have small leaves. They are hardy on sites sheltered from strong, drying winds and hidden from direct winter sunlight to about -23°C (USDA zone 6). You can protect them with fir branches or white woven in colder regions. Adult hebes usually regenerate readily after harsh winter damage if they are well-established. They can be grown with no protection in USDA zones 7 and up.
