Hebe ‘Bowles’ Variety’ is a compact, bushy, evergreen shrub, growing to about 18 in (45 cm) high. The slightly shiny, mid-green, broad, spear-shaped leaves are 1.5 in (4 cm) long and 0.4 in (1 cm) wide. Mauve-blue flowers in spikes up to 3 in (7.5 cm) long in early summer.

Little is known of the origin of this hebe cultivar, which is named after Edward Augustus Bowles (1865–1954). It is markedly different to Hebe ‘Bowles Hybrid’.
