There is some confusion about the name of this Hebe which is often referred to as 'Leonard Cockayne' after the New Zealand botanist and author of an early monograph on Hebes. This small evergreen shrub is notable for its somewhat rounded, blue green leaves. There is an occasional hint of red in the tips of very young leaves. New stems are infused with purple which turns woody with time. Hebe colonsoi var. glauca' is found on the North Island of New Zealand.
