Westringia
Smokie Smokey

Westringia fruticosa
Coastal Rosemary
(Coastal Rosemary Plants)
 

Westringia are hardy evergreen gloss leaved native shrubs that have foliage very similar in shape as rosemary.

This variety of westringia has the smoke colored foliage which is caused by very fine hairs on the leaves.
These hairs are a natural water saving ability that helps the plants survive in the extremes of summer.

They are long flowering, hardy, fast growing varieties that can also be hedged.

We usually also have 3-4 types other types of westringia available:
See pictures below

The notes below apply to all these Westingia

They can be kept at a trimmed to a height of 30cm tall or higher.

Will grow quite tight if left alone or you can prune to shape.

These plants will grow in Australia's hot summers and will handle the frosts to around minus 9 of it's cold winters.

Fine foliage, makes them easy to trim and great for hedges, topiary, bonsai etc.

It is hardy and drought tolerant once established.

Grows in a wide range of soil including quite poor and/or coastal.

You can trim them regularily if you want the formal look or let them grow to their natural shape.

I have seen this variety beautifully and tightly hedged.

It handles dry regions when established.

Able to withstand full sun to semi shade.
