Hebe stenophylla (syn Hebe parviflora angustifolia) is an evergreen, bushy shrub growing to about 40 in (1 m) high. The light green, somewhat drooping leaves are narrow and spear-shaped, 1–1.6 in (2.5–4 cm) long. The white flowers are seen in July to August.

It is found in Nelson and Marlborough, South Island, and south-east North Island, New Zealand. Recent research has shown that it is distinct from Hebe parviflora, having a different chromosome number.
