Plant Description: This Westringia is a great native alternative to exotic box plants. It has a naturally tidy shape and requires less pruning the many other Westringia varieties.
Uses: Small hedge (also as a border plant, in containers and for mass plantings)
Position & Tolerances: Full sun to light shade. Drought and frost tolerant. Will tolerate coastal plantings. Avoid depressed planting areas
Height & Width: 40-60cm high x 40-60cm wide (pruned), 70-95cm high x 70-95cm wide (unpruned). NOTE: Can grow up to 50% larger in good free draining soils in QLD and Nothern NSW (pruning is recommended in these areas)
Flowers: Mauve flowers from September to May
Foliage: Rich green foliage with a dense growth habit
Soil Type: Suits most soil types, prefers free draining
Best Planting Time: March to November
Planting Density: 1.5-3 plants per linear metre (2-4 plants per m²)
Where it thrives: NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA and South East QLD (not suited to Northern QLD)
Pruning: Prune 1-3 times per year after flowering for a tidy hedge, more frequent pruning will result in a tidier hedge. This plant can be left unpruned as it has a naturally tidy shape, however, for Northern NSW and QLD pruning is recommended

Establishment & Extra Care:

Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established.
Plant in a well mulched garden, a chunky mulch is recommended.
Use slow release fertiliser in spring, if required.
Avoid wet feet and depressed planting areas where the plant may be sitting in water, this can cause fungal problems.
This plant is NOT recommended for rain gardens.
