Description:
Aussie Box® Westringia can be pruned into a box hedge or left in its natural ball shape whilst staying compact and tidy. Produces mauve flowers throughout spring/summer and has a dense growth habit. Great alternative to exotic box plants as it has faster establishment and requires less water and needs less pruning than other Westringias. Size: 40-60cm high x 40-60cm wide pruned; 70-95cm high x 70-95cm wide unpruned Uses: Hedges, borders, containers and mass plantings.

Pests & Diseases: Generally trouble free

Cultural Notes: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Leave unpruned in its tidy natural shape or prune to shape 1-3 times a year after flowering (this depends on your requirements, more frequent pruning will provide a tidier shape). Doesn't like water logging. Not suitable for rain gardens. Where it works: NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA and South East QLD (not suited to Northern QLD).
