The Hebe recurva develops like a shrub. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. This plant in the summer assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 80 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.
Exposure Hebe recurva
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Hebe recurva in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Hebe recurva usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.During the winter months we can cover a portion of the soil near the roots with dry leaves or other mulch tissue; in this manner we will protect the plant from the harsh climate.
Watering Hebe recurva
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 2-3 weeks . Concerning those specimens grown in vases, let's remember that usually they need more watering, compared to the same shrubs placed in the ground. Moreover, they are often more sensible to temperatures, either very high or very low, and to radical apparatus diseases.
Treatments Hebe recurva
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.
Soil Hebe recurva
These shrubs favour a soft and deep, but well drained soil.
