The whipcord foliage of this upright hebe is lime-green much of the year but takes on a golden glow as the weather cools. Visually, it is reminiscent of a dwarf conifer. The side-branchlets grow shorter as they ascend the main stems in a modified herring-bone pattern. Hebe `Karo Golden Esk' has reliably flowered for us with the flowers opening on what appear to be the previous year's wood more-or-less inside the main body of the shrub. According to Lawrie Metcalf this is a natural hybrid between Hebe armstrongii and H. odora. This has been hardy for us.
