Native Shrubs & Ground Covers Range


Plant Description: This is an extremely compact form of Westringia that provides great colour contrast with its grey foliage and white flowers. It is the perfect native compliment for Ozbreed Aussie Box® Westringia 'WES02' PBR, and is the ideal native alternative to English Box.

Foliage: Stunning grey foliage that contrasts well with green plants.

Flowers: White flowers from September to May.

Uses: Small formal/informal hedges (also as a border plant, in containers and for mass planting).

Position & Tolerances: Full sun to light shade. Very frost and drought tolerant. Will tolerate periodic wet feet, a unique characteristic for a Westringia.

Soil Type: Suits most soil types, will work in sandy to heavy clay soils.

Best Planting Time: March to November.

Planting Density: 2-3 plants per linear metre (3-6 plants per m²).

Where it thrives: QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA and WA

Pruning: Prune to shape 1-3 times per year after flowering. More frequent pruning will provide a tidier hedge or shape. This plant can be left unpruned and will retain a naturally tidy, compact ball shape.
