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.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
