Hebe ‘Hinerua’ is an erect, much-branched, evergreen shrub growing to about 24 in (60 cm) high. The tiny, yellow-green, spear-shaped leaves are 0.11–0.15 in (3–4 mm) long. White flowers are carried on the branch ends; summer, and maybe autumn. A hebe hardy in the UK.

This naturally occurring hebe hybrid was found by Graham Hutchins in 1985 on the Hinerua Ridge in the Ruahine Range of mountains, (north east of Palmerston North), North Island, New Zealand. The parents may well be Hebe odora and Hebe subsimilis.
