What this board is about
First of all, due to excessive abuse in the past, this board will remain text only for the foreseeable future. I simply have no wish to delete endless CP.
This board is to discuss horticulture of the hebe-genus. For more information see Wikipedia:
The greek goddess of youth, Hebe, and to some extent, Greek mythology, is also on-topic.
Hebe at the Portland Nursery
>Hebes are great little evergreen shrubs that originate from New Zealand. There are over 100 species in this genus, and for a long time they were mistakenly called Veronica. They are grown for their compact shrubby form and the great variety of foliage.
Hebe Landscape Evaluation
> The landscape evaluation of Hebe at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center (NWREC) was established in 2000 and was removed in 2009. The purpose of the planting was to compare performance of a range of Hebe species and cultivars under typical western Oregon conditions and gather information on their landscape performance. One of the main goals of this trial was to develop comparative data on hardiness of Hebe cultivars and species and identify cultivars that were capable of tolerating typical cold events in a Pacific Northwest winter. In addition to assessing hardiness, other goals were to record flowering and growth information on the various cultivars and species, and also any pest or disease problems.
