Hebe ‘Menzies Bay’ is an erect, evergreen, bushy shrub, growing to 40–80 in (1–2 m) high. The tiny grey-green spear-shaped leaves are 0.24–0.4 in (6–10 mm) long, 0.1–0.16 in (3–4 mm) wide. This hebe has not been seen to flower and is fairly hardy in the UK.

Graham Hutchins saw this hebe in the garden of Mr and Mrs Menzies of Menzies Bay, Banks Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand. He suggests that it might be a hybrid between Hebe cupressoides and a small-leaved hebe.
