This is a prostrate form with white flowers over a long period from spring to summer. It grows well in full sun, requires little pruning and is easy care.
Use Westringia ‘White Rambler’ in the garden border as a filler in the foreground, or plant it en-masse as a low growing hedge or border along a pathway or nature strip.
Westringia ‘White Rambler’ Care
Once planted this is very low care plant. It can be lightly pruned back to maintain shape or keep it off pathways if needed.
When planting, ensure that the soil is well drained. The best time to0 plant is in late summer to early spring, this gives the root system time to develop a little before summer.
Mulch lightly around the plant and provide a little extra moisture during dry periods over the first two summer.
Fertiliser is not generally required in good soils, you can use a low phosphate native plant fertiliser in early spring if desired.
