    Add lush elegance to your landscape year-round with Grey Box Dwarf Coast Rosemary. This versatile, dense, evergreen shrub provides structure to both formal and informal gardens. Prized for its ability to withstand heavy pruning, Grey Box Westringia offers endless garden design opportunities from tightly clipped geometric shapes or whimsical topiary designs to formal borders. This dwarf Westringia grows 2-3 ft. tall and wide and can be used to accentuate gateways, entrances, or driveways as manicured specimens in the ground or in containers. This waterwise Australian shrub can help define your outdoor space.

    Westringia fruticosa ‘Grey Box’ resembles boxwood with the bushy foliage and landscape uses but the beautiful grey-green small pointed leaves sets it apart. Grey Box Westringia is a great, drought tolerant alternative to boxwood hedges. The compact size and round growth habit of Grey Box Coast Rosemary make this the perfect landscaping shrub for low hedges, borders, groupings, or anywhere in the garden.

    This tough beauty grows well in both coastal and arid inland climates and tolerates wind, sea spray, and wet soils often associated with bioswales.

    This plant patented variety of Westringia fruticosa is also known as ‘WES04’ and is a member of the mint family. The non-fragrant, white flowers bloom in spring and throughout most of the year. The flowers resemble rosemary blooms in shape but are a little bigger. The pale grey-green leaves have a glaucous or waxy coating that gives Grey Box its overall grey look.

    The common name of coast rosemary refers to the leaf shape resemblance to Rosmarinus, but Westringia leaves are not edible nor fragrant like the common rosemary.

    Grey Box Dwarf Coast Rosemary will add color and a shapely form to any garden. This easy to grow, waterwise evergreen shrub provides year-round interest and brings an abundance of beauty and elegance into the landscape.

    Plant care

    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 in soil with good drainage. Water regularly after planting until roots are established then reduce frequency and water as needed. Looks best with deep, infrequent irrigation in coastal gardens. Slightly more frequent irrigation may be needed for arid, inland gardens. Drought tolerant once established but looks best with supplemental watering in summer. 

    Grey Box Coastal Rosemary responds well to regular pruning. Prune tips lightly after flowering or more frequently to maintain a tidier, dense formal look, or desired shape. If not pruned, Grey Box Westringia will grow naturally into a ball shape. 

    Westringia Grey Box is low maintenance and tolerant of drought, wind, and sea spray, and looks good formally pruned or naturally informal - qualities that are suitable for both experienced and inexperienced gardeners.

    Q: How hardy is Westringia Grey Box?
