Hebes: A Guide to Species, Hybrids and Allied Genera Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The genus Hebe is a treasure trove of more than 100 species and subspecies of medium-sized to dwarf evergreen shrubs with outstanding ornamental features, both of flower and leaf. Native to New Zealand, these plants are grown in Australia, the western United States, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe. Many species boast handsome foliage, ranging from a rich, glittering green to gray, silver, bronze, red, and violet. This definitive volume provides a wealth of information about the native habitats, preferred growing conditions, cultivation, and history of hebes, and an A-Z guide to all the known species and most horticulturally valuable hybrids. Also included are the many attractive Hebe relatives: Heliohebe, ×Heohebe, Parahebe, and Chionohebe. For gardeners, growers, and nurseries, this is the definitive volume on these aristocrats among ornamental shrubs.
