Hebe cupressoides ‘Boughton Dome’ is a small, neat, grey-green leaved, evergreen shrub, growing to about 18 in (45 cm) high and 30 in (80 cm) wide. Although it doesn’t flower it is a good foliage plant – the paler, larger juvenile foliage giving added interest in summer. It may occasionally revert to the large leaved form (Hebe cupressoides).

This dwarf form of Hebe cupressoides was found in Scotland by Lady Scott (Valerie Finnis) in 1970, and named after Boughton House, in Northamptonshire. A hardy hebe in the UK.
