Hebe ‘Christensenii’ photographed at The Quinta Arboretum, Swettenham, Cheshire, UK

Hebe ‘Christensenii’ forms a bushy, robustly growing, rounded evergreen shrub, about 40 in (1 m) high. The leaves are small, stiff, glossy and green, about 0.15 in (4 mm) long. No flowers are seen. It is thought to be a naturally occurring hybrid between Hebe odora and Hebe cupressoides.

This hebe is named after the amateur botanist Mr C E Christensen, who found it in the Hanmer district of the South Island. It has been wrongly distributed as Hebe ‘Pauciflora Hort’.
