Hebe ‘Fairlane’ forms a low-growing and fairly compact evergreen bush, reaching 12 in (30 cm) high, and 24 in (60 cm) or more wide. The grey-green leaves are oval, about 0.5–0.6 in (12–16 mm) long, and 0.2–4 in (6–10 mm) wide; young leaves have reddish edges. The flowers are light violet, summer. A hebe fully hardy in the UK.

This hardy hebe is a cross between Hebe pinguifolia and possibly Hebe ‘Youngii’, raised in 1970 by Graham Hutchins of the County Park Nursery, Hornchurch, Essex, UK.
