Sizing guide

Westringia fruticosa 'Zena' is a cultivar of Westringia fruticosa, a species of shrub native to Australia. It is commonly known as coastal rosemary or native rosemary, due to its resemblance to the herb rosemary.

'Zena' is a compact and low-growing variety of coastal rosemary, reaching up to 1.5m tall and wide. It produces small, white to pale lilac flowers that bloom in the spring and summer, which attract bees and other pollinators. The leaves are narrow, grey-green and slightly aromatic.

This plant prefers well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade. It is drought-tolerant and can handle coastal conditions, making it suitable for use in coastal gardens and landscaping. It is also suitable for use as a hedge, border or ground cover.

Maintenance for 'Zena' includes pruning after flowering to maintain its shape and size. This plant is generally hardy and pest-free, but it may be susceptible to root rot if soil conditions are not well-drained. It is also important to protect it from strong winds, which can damage the plant.

Zena Westringia is a hardy and naturally compact plant that responds beautifully to clipping and shaping, excellent for low screeening or hedging or even topiratry in a formal native garden. Drought and frost tolerant, and can handle salty winds, so is good for coastal plantings. Likes a well drained soil, sunny to lightly shaded spot.

Hardy form of Westringia with white star shaped flowers in spring and summer. Highly recommended by Online Plants for adaptability and hardyness.
