Hebe ‘Maria’ (syn Hebe ‘Addenda Maria’) is an evergreen, compact, bushy shrub, which grows to about 20–24 in (50–60 cm) high. The green leaves are broad spear-shaped, about 2.4 in (6 cm) long by 0.8 in (2 cm) wide. The flowers mauve, summer to autumn. This hebe is fairly hardy in the UK.

This hebe cultivar is a cross between Hebe ‘Wiri Vision’ and Hebe ‘Seksty’. It needs a sunny, sheltered site in a well drained soil, and was introduced by the Danish nursery, Gartneriet Kjægårdsminde.
