Hebe ‘Blue Clouds’ is a showy evergreen shrub, which looks good throughout the year. It grows to about 40 in (100 cm) high, and the same across. The leaves are lance shaped, shiny, dark green, turning dark purple in winter, 1.5 in (40 mm) long, and 0.4 in (10 mm) wide. The mauve flowers are seen in June to July and again in September to December. A hardy hebe in the UK.

It is a seedling from Hebe ‘Mrs Winder’, and was raised in 1974 by Graham Hutchins. It seems to be susceptible to downy mildew.
