Hebe ‘Wiri Joy’ is a neat, compact, evergreen shrub, growing to 30 in (80 cm) high. The dark green, shiny leaves are spear-shaped, about 2 in (5 cm) long. The flowers are pink-purple, summer. A hebe fairly hardy in the UK.

Jack Hobbs raised this hebe cultivar in 1982 at the Auckland Regional Botanic Garden, New Zealand, as part of a program to breed hebes suitable for the Auckland climate. The parents are Hebe ‘Carnea’ and Hebe speciosa.
