Westringia brevifolia ‘Lilac and Lace’ – Coastal Rosemary

This is a lovely variegated version of Westringia, with grey green leaves enlivened by a nice cream edging. The flowers are a pretty mauve shade and are produced for many months of the year, from late winter to late summer. It grows to around a metre and a half high and wide, and can be used for low hedging and topiary work. A great easy care plant for low maintenance gardens, which responds well to pruning to keep it smaller and to encourage a more dense habit. Good for most soil types, from dry to moist. Likes a full sun to lightly shaded spot. A great plant for coastal gardens, and can take wind and light frosts.
