Hebe ‘Margret’ PBR, forms a low, compact evergreen bush, about 12–18 in (30–45 cm) high, and more across. The small, shiny green leaves are spear-shaped, 0.5–0.6 in (1.2–1.4 cm) long. The flowers are mauve-blue fading to white. A hebe fairly hardy in the UK.

Raised at the Rocklands Nursery, North Yorkshire and named after Margret Potter, one of its owners. It is possibly a cross between Hebe ‘Mauve Queen’ and Hebe ‘Youngii’. Often erroneously called Hebe ‘Margaret’.
