Westringia fruticosa 'Naringa'
'Naringa' Westringia, Native Rosemary
A fast growing, extremely hardy shrub with a tidy, dense habit. Leaves are grey-green, short, and in a whorled arrangement on the stems. Masses of pretty mauve flowers are displayed during Spring and occasionally throughout the year. Enjoys full sun to part shade in sandy to well-drained clay soils and tolerates both cold and drought. Does well in inland situations as well as windswept, coastal sites. Dislikes wet feet and waterlogged soils in depressed sites. This is a great hedging Westringia for the development of medium to tall hedges as it establishes very quickly. If kept low, trim twice yearly, if taller, trim annually. If growing as its natural form, prune lightly every 2-3 years to keep tidy. Great as a windbreak or specimen plant in coastal gardens, parks or for general landscaping purposes. Can also be used for topiary work.
