Hebe ‘Beatrice’ is a seedling from Hebe ‘Bowles Hybrid’, raised at County Park Nursery by Graham Hutchins, and named after a friend, Joan Beatrice Lewis. It is an evergreen shrub reaching 2 ft (60 cm) high. The leaves are lance-shaped, about 1.2 in (30 mm) long, and 0.3 in (7 mm) wide, glossy green on both surfaces, and form a small leaf bud. The flowers open pale lilac and fade to white, and are carried from throughout summer and autumn.

This hebe is hardy and easy to grow in the UK, and has a long flowering period.
