Hebe ‘James Platt’ is an erect evergreen shrub, which reaches about 24 in (60 cm) high, and 16 in (40 cm) across. The oval leaves are dull green, with a red edge, about 0.5 in (13 mm) long. The branches of this hebe are dark purple, which make a nice contrast to the leaves. The flowers are violet-blue, June to July. A hebe hardy in the UK.

It is thought to be named after the English plantsman, James Platt. It is similar to Hebe ‘Youngii’, but has an upright habit.
