Australian Rosemary Overview

Westringea 'Grace' is an erect, tender evergreen shrub with a bushy to rounded habit. From late spring through until early autumn, this plant will produce small white to pale blue flowers with speckled throats, above the dark green lance-shaped leaves. Originally from Australia, these tough plants are low maintenance and are tolerant of dry conditions, making them a popular choice to include in frost-free urban and coastal gardens, or Mediterranean planting schemes. It has earned a coveted 'RHS Award of Garden Merit'. Westringia 'Grace' is the preferred selling name for Westringia brevifolia 'Hutrace' and is occasionally listed as Westringia fruticosa 'Grace'.
