Hebe ‘Edington’ forms a somewhat open, upright growing, evergreen shrub, about 40 in (1 m) high, or more in a sheltered spot. The leaves are mid-green and lance-shaped 1.2–2.4 in (30–60 mm) long; the young leaves and leaf buds are purple. The flowers are a rich violet-purple, fading to pale purple.

This hebe cultivar was raised by the late Douglas Chalk in his nursery in the Somerset village of Edington. Hebe ‘Autumn Glory’ and Hebe ‘Midsummer Beauty’ are the parents.
