Westringia ( Coastal Rosemary ) is an Australian Native plant suited to any type of garden. It is tough, hardy, drought tolerant once established, stands up to wind and salt spray, and still comes through smiling and flowering like a champion in a Miss Universe contest. These plants are used a lot around Sydney Harbour for the reasons described above, but they still benefit and look better from regular water, a little fertilizer, and a good trim every so often to keep the plant more compact. There are several varieties of Westringia, but the common ones grow to around 1.5 to 2 metres tall. The flowers are usually in shades of white or blue, and are very attractive, and adorn the plants year round., and the bees and butterflies love them. Plant them in a Sunny position for best results. These plants were growing around the Harbour foreshore.
Note - this plant is not Rosemary ( the culinary herb ), this is only the common name. To comment on the correct plant, always search for the plant using the Botanical name - Westringia .
