Hebe ‘Amanda Cook’ forms an open, evergreen bush, reaching about 2 ft (65 cm) high, and more across. The rounded, green to grey-green leaves are 1 in (25 mm) long, with irregular yellow edges. The branchlets are reddish-brown. The flowers are a rich violet, and appear in summer and remain until the autumn. It is a fairly hardy hebe in the UK.

This hebe cultivar is a variegated sport of Hebe ‘Autumn Glory’, and was discovered in 1980 by Brian Cook of Warwickshire College of Agriculture, and named after his daughter.
