Hebe ‘Carnea’ is a much-branched evergreen shrub growing to about 4 ft (1.2 m) high. The green leaves are narrow and spear-shaped, 1.5–2.5 in (4.5–6 cm) long, 0.5 in (1.2 cm) wide. The flowers are a rich pink fading to white; summer.

Hebe ‘Carnea’ was found in an unknown garden in New Zealand, before 1881. The parents are thought to be Hebe parviflora and Hebe speciosa. Hebe ‘Great Orme’, Hebe ‘Hadspen Pink’ and Hebe ‘Watson’s Pink’ are similar.
