Hebe ‘Midsummer Beauty’ is a large, strong-growing, upright evergreen shrub, about 5 ft (1.5 m) high. The green leaves are spear-shaped, up to 4 in (10 cm) long, and purplish when young. The flowers are light violet fading to white, and occur in long spikes up to 12 in (30 cm) long, summer to late autumn. A hebe fairly hardy in the UK.

This hebe is good shrub for landscaping or a large garden; but for smaller gardens Hebe ‘Edington’ is better (more compact and hardy, better leaf and flower colour).
