Hebe elliptica ‘Anatoki’ photographed at Duchy College, Rosewarne, Cornwall, UK

Hebe elliptica ‘Anatoki’ forms a bushy, evergreen shrub about 16 in (40 cm) or more high. The leaves are fleshy, green, oval, 0.75–1.5 in (2–4 cm) long, with light edges. The flowers are white to pale mauve, and relatively large.

This form of Hebe elliptica comes from Anatoki, Nelson, South Island, New Zealand. It differs from the more common form, Charleston, in having purplish stems and that the midrib protrudes more (beyond the leaf apex). This hebe is fairly hardy in the UK.
