Hebe Snowdrift is an old time favourite amongst Australian gardeners, for its proven performance in gardens across the country. Snowdrift is an evergreen, bushy shrub reaching up to 1.5 metres in height/width, with narrow forest green foliage. The tips of Snowdrift open up to white or a very pale mauve flower spikes through summer. Originally a native of New Zealand, Hebes are renowned for their tough characteristics being tolerable of a wide range of conditions. Great for coastal gardens – tolerant of salt spray and strong winds. Butterfly attracting, perfect for poolsides, small gardens and low hedging.
