planting a hebe shrub near foundation

rayner466 added on April 6, 2015 | Answered

Can I plant a hebe shrub near a house foundation? I have been told not to plant near my house wall because the roots will get into the foundations. Is there a root problem with hebes? I live in Woore, Cheshire.

Hebe shrubs would make a good foundation shrub. I found nothing in my research to indicate otherwise.
