Hebe cupressoides is a large, upright or rounded, whipcord, evergreen shrub, which grows up to 6.5 ft (2 m) high. The leaves are grey-green, about 0.6 in (1.5 mm) long, which closely clasp the stem. In June and July it has clusters of lilac flowers at the branch tips.

This hebe is mostly found in the Mackenzie Basin and the Shotover River Valley. It was found on river-flats and terraces on the eastern side of the Southern Alps, South Island, New Zealand.
