This versatile plant can easily fit into your garden plans! Native to New Zealand, Shrubby Veronica Marjorie has several excellent characteristics to recommend it. Its glossy, narrow green leaves are lovely all year, complemented from July to September with light purple flowers which fade to white. Hebe Marjorie is hardy through most of the UK, although it will need winter protection in the coldest regions. Shrubby Veronica Marjorie will grow to a maximum height of 1 metre and spread of 1.2 metres in 5 to 10 years. Once planted, it will need little care.

With its attractive evergreen foliage, lovely flowers, and small size, Shrubby Veronica Marjorie is a great choice for container growing on a rooftop terrace, balcony, or patio, although it will require some winter protection in a cold winter.
