Hebe tetragona is a sub-alpine plant of the family Plantaginaceae, which is endemic to New Zealand.

H. tetragona can grow up to 1 metre high and has very small, yellow-green leaves that completely surround the stem. White flowers are produced during summer.

The plant gets its name from its distinctive four-sided branches.[1]
