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.
