Hebe allanii, commonly known as Hebe, is an evergreen shrub with a bushy, domed habit. Hebe allanii is native to New Zealand. In its native habitat it grows on exposed rocky outcrops, open tussock grassland and within scrubby vegetation. Its thick grey/ green leaves are oval shaped and up to 2cm long. Its small white flowers appear as terminal spikes and are attractive to pollinating insects. Hebe allanii is tolerant of maritime conditions. Necessary pruning should be carried out after flowering.
