Hebe 'Mrs Winder' Hedge Plants Description
Hebe Mrs Winder, sometimes referred to as Shrubby Veronica, is a low-growing evergreen hebe. It flowers profusely with long, purple-coloured, tapered flower spikes from late summer, throughout autumn and often into early winter. This variety is also salt-tolerant making it an excellent choice for coastal areas.
In ideal conditions, Hebe Mrs Winder can grow to about 1.3m tall, but on average usually grows to around 1m or slightly less, so it's particularly suitable for a low hedge. When trimming, we'd recommend it being neatened up into a series of mounds or a rounded hedge rather than have hard edges imposed on it, in order to highlight its best attributes.
Mrs Winder prefers a sunny situation and moist well-drained soil; it also benefits from being protected from fierce winter winds. It is somewhat faster growing when young but once it reaches its maximum height, the growth slows and it requires very little maintenance other than an annual trim to keep the desired shape.

Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.
Hebe Mrs Winder should be pruned in the growing season - or right at the end of the Winter dormancy period (this is dependent on how soon the Spring arrives). They should not be pruned in late Autumn - nor winter months.
