Hebe ‘Glaucophylla Variegata’ (syn Hebe darwiniana ‘Variegata’) forms an erect, evergreen shrub, about 40 in (1 m) or more high. The variegated leaves are narrow, spear-shaped, pale green, with a cream edge, 0.5–0.6 in (1.2–1.6 cm) long. The flowers are lilac, July.

This used to be known in the UK as Hebe darwiniana ‘Variegata’, but in the 1960s became Hebe ‘Glaucophylla Variegata’. It is most likely a hybrid, since it is quite different from Hebe glaucophylla. It is fairly hardy in the UK.
