Hebe ‘Balfouriana’ is an erect growing, evergreen bushy shrub, growing to 3 ft (90 cm). The pale green, shiny, oval leaves are 0.5–0.75 in (1.25–1.8 cm) long. Young leaves have purple edges. The flowers are pale blue-purple; summer.

Hebe ‘Balfouriana’ was raised prior to 1897 at Edinburgh Botanic Gardens from seed received from New Zealand. It may be a cross between Hebe pimeleoides and Hebe vernicosa.
