Westringia ‘Glabra Cadabra’ – Coastal Rosemary


A hardy shrub with soft grey-green foliage and mauve flowers, growing to around 1.5 metres high and wide. Attractive as a specimen or flowering container plant; ideal for formal and informal hedging and screening, also good for topiary work as it responds well to pruning. Flowers mainly in spring, with spot flowering all other times. Grows in a wide range of soils, and is well suited to coastal positions, as it is very salt tolerant. Copes with drought and frost.
