20th June 2012 ... Garden note... Hebe

Below is a pic of my Hebe bush, Hebe albicans spp.
It is about 10years old and is approx 4ft x 4 ft....

This is covered with bees during the day and I have also noticed  moths feeding on it at night.
Last night was calm, warm and humid, and I found Garden Carpets, Yellow Shell and Pugs feeding at the flowers, or at least attracted by the perfume.
But it's the bees that love it, I have never seen such full pollen bags on bees before.

I think a couple more Hebe's wouldn't go astray in the garden and there are many varieties of this insect friendly plant.....
