From the far north of New Zealand's North Island, this hebe is a large, rather coarse shrub of up to 8' in height with leathery, oblong dark green leaves 2 1/2 - 5" long. From midwinter to early summer it produces 4" dense spikes of white flowers. It is very tolerant of coastal conditions. 'Latisepala' has deep purple-blue flowers, the darkest in color of any hebe. Hebe macrocarpa var brevifolila has reddish purple flowers and shoreter leaves.
Zones 9-11.
