Hebe ‘E A Bowles’ is an open, upright, evergreen, bushy shrub, which can grow up to 4 ft (1.2 m). The green, spear-shaped leaves are about 1.6 in (4 cm) long, and have a red edge. The flowers are lavender-blue; summer.

This is similar to Hebe ‘Mrs Winder’, but taller and less compact, and has a distinct terminal leaf bud. It is named after Edward Augustus Bowles (1865–1954), the famous gardener of Myddleton House, Enfield, near London. A hebe hardy in the UK.
