The grey-green leaves are broadly spear-shaped, concave 0.4–0.6 in (1–1.5 cm) long, margins red on young leaves. The flowers are white, late April or early May to June. A hebe hardy in the UK.

This hebe cultivar was named after Edward Page, foreman of Dunedin Botanical Gardens, sometime before 1926. It is widely grown in the UK, and is one of the first hebes to flower.
