Westringia fruticosa 'Grey Box' is an evergreen small shrub with grey green dense foliage, and small white flowers in spring, summer and autumn. It is a very compact grey leafed Westringa ideal for small hedging. It is also good for container growing. The grey foliage will contrast nicely with other garden plants. This tough drought and frost tolerant Westringia looks great when pruned to shape or when left to grow naturally. It grows to around 40 cms high and wide if unpruned, but can be pruned to smaller size.
Westringia fruticosa is an easy care plant, and is also a very tidy plant. Pests and disease problems are rare, and it does well in a wide range of soil types. It is an excellent plant for coastal positions, as it resists salt spray.
