Ozbreed Aussie Box® Westringia is a compact drought tolerant box hedge plant
Growing small formal hedges in Australia or any other drought prone climate is difficult. Plants like English Box and Japanese Box often struggle with poor soils, and drought. Ozbreed Aussie Box® Westringia is a dense compact Aussie native shrub that’s super drought tolerant. Ozbreed Aussie Box® Westringia performs well in most parts of Australia, and in California.
It can be made into a low maintenance small hedge, or can be used with very minimal pruning in gardens and mass plantings simply left in its natural ball shape. Ozbreed Aussie Box® Westringia flushes with mauve coloured flowers in Spring, and often in Autumn as well.
It’s natural drought tolerance makes it great for dry inland gardens, and its tolerance to salt laden winds make it ideal for coastal gardens. It works in full sun to part shade, and can cope with many soil types.
So as a formal hedge or a naturally shaped small shrub, Ozbreed Aussie Box® Westringia is one beautiful tough Aussie.
