Westringia fruticosa ‘Smokey’ is a rounded compact shrub that has variegated leaves of grey-green and creamy white margins resulting in a smokey-grey appearance. The small white 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.
