Hebe tetragona is an erect growing whipcord, which can reach 40 in (100 cm) in cultivation. The tiny yellow-green, evergreen leaves completely enclose the stem. White flowers at the end of the branchlets, summer, but seldom seen in cultivation.

Hebe tetragona grows in subalpine areas of the mountains of the North Island, New Zealand. The branches are distinctly four-sided, hence its name. This hebe is uncommon in cultivation in the UK.
