Hebe ‘Loganioides’ is a small, hybrid whipcord hebe, growing to about 10 in (25 cm). It has a decumbent habit, resembling heather. The tiny evergreen leaves are green, and colour bronze in winter. Relatively large, white flowers in early summer. A hebe hardy in the UK.

This hebe was collected in 1869 by John Francis Armstrong near the upper reaches of the Rangitata River, Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand. It is named after Logania depressa, a now extinct prostrate shrub which it resembles. James Logan was an Irish writer on botany.
