Hebe ‘Milborne Port’ is a rounded, bushy, evergreen shrub, which grows to a height of 5 ft (1.5 m). The glossy green leaves are spear-shaped, 2–3 in (5–7.5 cm) long. The flowers are bluey mauve, fading to white; flowering in summer, and on into winter. It is fairly hardy hebe in the UK.

This hebe cultivar was traced to Milborne Port, near Sherborne, Dorset, UK. Its exact origin could not be found, so it was named after the village.
