Hebe decumbens was discovered by Joseph B. Armstrong on the South Island of New Zealand in 1869. Its species name refers to the way the stems grow along the ground with their leading tips rising upward. The dark red purple stems are mirrored in the pencil-thin red margins circling the apple green leaves. Individual leaves are elliptical coming to an acute point. Small white flowers are clustered in short racemes. This is said to be drought tolerant.
