Produces mauve flowers throughout spring/summer and has a dense growth habit. Great alternative to exotic box plants as it has faster establishment and requires less water and needs less pruning than other Westringias.

Size:40-60cm high x 40-60cm wide pruned; 70-95cm high x 70-95cm wide unpruned.

Planting Density: 2-4 plants per m², 1.5-3 plants per linear metre.

Uses: Hedges, borders, containers and mass plantings.

Position: Full sun to light shade. Suits most soil types, prefers free draining soils. Avoid wet feet or depressed planting areas. Tolerates frost and drought.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Leave unpruned in its tidy natural shape or prune to shape 1-3 times a year after flowering (this depends on your requirements, more frequent pruning will provide a tidier shape).
