Hebe ‘Sweet Kim’ is small, compact, evergreen, bushy shrub, which grows to 2 ft (30 cm) high and wide in 4 years. The small, broad, spear-shaped leaves are about 0.8 in (2 cm) long, and have a grey-green central stripe, with cream outer stripes, and a reddish edge. In winter the newer growth is flushed red. White flowers in summer. This hebe is hardy in the UK.

Hebe ‘Sweet Kim’ was bred by Marchant’s Nursery, Wimbourne, Dorset, UK, and introduced in 2002. This hebe cultivar is similar to Hebe ‘Silver Dollar’ and Hebe ‘Pink Elephant’, and may have the same parentage.
