Could you help me identify this type of Hebe? From photos it looks like a couple of different varieties. I have been given two plants to go in my new semi-raised border, which is sunny in Spring/Summer - semi shade now. See pic. I have just planted two Hanky Panky roses and there are two obelisks for climbers. I plan to add more roses from existing containers. My soil is quite sandy. I am wondering how big the Hebes will get and if they flower? I moved a similar, but pink tinged, Hebe from my front garden to the R side raised bed (previously a red fish pond) at the back, as it looked 'lonely' - didn't seem to put on much new growth and I want to grow larger shrubs in the front garden - which is south facing and gets very hot in Summer.
This brings me to my 2nd question - ideas please for two matching container plants to go each side of the front door. I have roses there now but they get baked in the sun - which is a problem when I'm away. The containers are big, which are difficult to move. I plan to put the existing roses (climbers) around an arch in my back garden, which has had it's makeover! I have posted 'before (estate agent pics taken in Summer) and after' (recent) photos. What do you think of my 'faux' old brick wall? Previously painted doorstep red like rest of garden! Sorry if post is rather long/lot of photos.
