Hebe ‘Nicola’s Blush’ forms a bushy evergreen shrub, about 2 ft (60 cm) high and the same across. Its leaves are spear-shaped, mid-green, about 1.5 in (3.8 cm) long, with red margins; the leaf is coloured purple in winter. The flowers are pink, fading to white, which gives a pleasant two-tone effect. It has an very long flowering period, which can last from early summer until the New Year. A hebe fairly hardy in the UK.

This hebe was raised in 1980 by Graham Hutchins of County Park Nursery, Essex. It has proved a very popular hebe in the UK.
