Creating an atmosphere in the garden is a doddle with these bright and often fragrant hedge plants. The bright purple flowers of Lavender and the light, green foliage of Rosemary, not only look fantastic when displayed as a low hedge, but emit pleasant aromas that linger in the air as you walk by. Our range of Lavender are favoured amongst pollinating bees and wonderful butterflies as they adore the gorgeous flowers that sit on long green stems.
Garden designers want their borders to bring impact to their creation and the use of unique foliage and flowers are the best way to do so. The variegated foliage of Hebe Red Edge, as you can guess from the name, boasts leaves with dark shades of green, surrounded by a soft red outline. Its contrasting colours are a great way to create a focal point within a garden design.
