Hebe ochracea 'E.C. Stirling' is somewhat of a mystery to us. In color, habit and name it resembles Hebe ochracea 'James Stirling' and for some time we imagined that the two plants were one and the same. We have grown both and 'E.C. Stirling' appears to be a dwarf form of 'James Stirling'. Both have stems that have a feather-shaped arrangement of branchlets bearing tightly adpressed small leaves. These adpressed leaves give the plants their characteristic whip-cord appearance. The foliage is basically old-gold in color, an unusual color which distinguishes both cultivars.
