Hebe ‘Bracken Hill’ is a small, semi-prostrate, evergreen shrub, height 6 in (15 cm) and spread 18 in (45 cm). The leaves are small, oval, and green to grey-green. The flowers are in 1 in (25 mm) long spikes of light blue-mauve flowers, which fade in time. It is a hardy hebe, and has withstood over twelve winters in Cheshire, UK.

It is a cross between Hebe allanii and Hebe pimeleoides, and was named after the previous location of the Bristol Botanic Garden, where it was raised.
