This evergreen shrublet was named for Edouard F.A. Raoul who was a medical officer aboard an expeditionary ship during the 19th Century. He found Hebe raoulii in the low mountains outside of Canterbury, New Zealand. Hebe raoulii has small leathery, spoon-shaped leaves with red margins. The young branches and branchlets are purplish in color. Because it is small, this shrub needs to be sited carefully so that it is not overgrown by neighboring plants.

Late spring.  10 in. x 10-12 in.
