Hebe ‘Autumn Glory’ was raised in Northern Ireland in the early 20th Century. It forms an open, evergreen bush, reaching about 2 ft (65 cm) high, and more across. The leaves are rounded, with a red margin, and are 1 in (25 mm) long. The branchlets are reddish-brown. The flowers are a rich violet, and appear in summer and remain until the autumn. It is fairly hardy in the UK.

This hebe was found before 1912 as a seedling at Tobarcorran, Northern Ireland. The parents are said to be Hebe pimeleoides and Hebe ‘Franciscana’.
