Description

Westringia fruticosa ‘Blue Gem’ is a compact upright shrub with pointed small green leaves that can be pruned into a low hedge. Vibrant lavender-blue flowers bloom in spring and throughout most of the year. Will tolerate moderately dry growing conditions but looks best with supplemental watering in late spring and summer. Westringias are highly versatile dense shrubs native to Australian coastal cliffs that can be used as formal hedges, topiaries, or ornamental shrubs. These fast growing plants have a naturally rounded bushy form but also respond well to pruning. Plant in full sun or in bright filtered light. Tolerant of wind and salt spray. The common name of coast rosemary refers to the leaf shape resemblance of Rosmarinus, but Westringia is not edible nor fragrant like the common rosemary.

Plant care

Requires soil with good drainage. Water regularly after planting until roots are established then reduce frequency and water as needed. Prune tips lightly after flowering or prune regularly to maintain tidier shape for dense formal look.
