Westringia fruticosa
‘Smokey’

A versatile and resilient evergreen shrub that is a top performer in the landscape, this coast rosemary variety features linear leaves that are sage green with creamy white margins. This lovely combo gives the shrub an eye-catching silvery appearance. If left unpruned, plants form a relaxed and airy shrub 4-5' high and wide. Delicate white flowers, tinged violet, appear in spring. There are many uses for this hardy shrub. It provides wonderful contrast for shrubs with darker foliage, it's drought tolerant enough to be used as a hedge and attractive enough to use as a focal point. Bees love the flowers too. Plant in full sun to light shade in well-drained soil. Prune to shape. This shrub stands up to wind, to salty air and to periods of dryness. Deer resistant.
