Hebe annulata is an open, straggling whipcord, with minute, dull, yellow-green leaves. White flowers, in short spikes are borne in early summer. A fully hardy hebe in the UK.

It is known from the Criffel Range, Remarkables, Hector and Takitimu Mountains, South Island, New Zealand.

Recent research in 1999 by Steven Wagstaff and Peter Wardle confirmed its status as a species. Hebe annulata is closely related to Hebe armstrongii and Hebe salicornioides.
