Hebe laingii (syn Hebe hectorii subsp laingii) is a whipcord hebe that forms an upright bush, growing to about 12 in (30 cm) high. The yellow-green minute leaves are clasped around the stem. White flowers are seen at the tips of the branches, summer. A hebe hardy in the UK.

This hebe is found in subalpine areas of Stewart Island and Fiordland, South Island, New Zealand. Recent research in New Zealand has reduced it to subspecies of Hebe hectorii.
