Westringia fruticosa and Westringia eremicola

Westringia is a very hardy, versatile little shrub. You can let it grow wild or trim into neat balls. It’s an ideal plant for the nature strip.

Westringia fruticosa has white flowers right through the year

Westringia eremicola has slightly finer, greener leaves and purple/lilac flowers.

Westringia just needs an occasional trim to keep a ball shape on the verge. The one in the foreground has just turned its toes up. I lost a few plants close together – the gaps replanted December 2020.
Westringia eremicola added to the postie garden bed October 2020
