Hebe ‘Wiri Dawn’ is a small, bushy, evergreen shrub, growing to 18 in (45 cm). The olive-green leaves are narrow spear-shaped, about 0.8–1.2 in (2–3 cm). The rose-pink flower buds open to give pale pink flowers, summer. A hebe fairly hardy in the UK.

Jack Hobbs raised this hebe cultivar in 1987 at the Auckland Regional Botanic Garden, New Zealand, as part of a program to breed hebes suitable for the Auckland climate. He crossed Hebe albicans with Hebe ‘Wiri Joy’.
