Westringia fruticosa 'Aussie Box' PBR

Aussie Box Westringia, Dwarf Coastal Rosemary


A tough, small growing Australian native shrub with a compact, dense growth habit, introduced as an alternative to English and Japanese Buxus. Leaves are attractive, small, pale green maturing to emerald green, growing in whorls around the stems. Pretty, pale mauve flowers appear during Spring and Autumn. Grows in full sun to part shade, developing a tighter habit in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soils and conditions, growing in sandy loams to clay loams. Withstands drought once established as well as heat, humidity, frost and salt spray. Best suited to arid Mediterranean climates. Clip every 12-18 months to form a tight hedge or leave to grow naturally to form a neat, ball-shaped plant. Perfect in low maintenance mass plantings, borders/hedges, coastal sites and water-wise gardens.
