Hebe ‘Edinensis’ is a spreading, slow-growing, upright evergreen shrub, which can grow up to 12 in (30 cm) high. The tiny, bright green leaves are spear-shaped 0.2–0.3 in (6–8 mm) long. The flowers are white to lilac, occasionally seen in summer.

This hybrid between a whipcord hebe and a normally leaved hebe was raised in Edinburgh in the early 20th Century. The parents may be Hebe hectori and Hebe odora. Hardy in the UK.
