Westringia fruticosa ‘Seafoam Swell’ – Coastal Rosemary

This is a very compact, free-flowering form of the extremely adaptable Coastal Rosemary. Its peak flowering is in spring but flowers can be found on the plant at most times of the year. It is a perfect option as a low growing hedge or informal screen plant, but its profuse flowering and attractive grey-green foliage also makes it suitable as feature plant. This is a truly low maintenance plant that tolerates dry conditions and poor soil and will still look good with zero attention, however, if you wish to use it as formal hedge it will need a light trim or two through spring and summer.
