Westringia fruticosa ‘Blue Heaven’ – Coastal Rosemary

Westringia ‘Blue Heaven’ is a great low maintenance plant with soft blue-grey foliage that responds brilliantly to pruning. An excellent hedge or topiary plant, or can be left to grow unpruned if desired, as it is naturally dense growing. A very tough plant which does well on a wide range of soil types, and suits coastal sites. It has small mauve flowers in spring which attract butterflies and native bees.
