Description: Low Horizon™ Westringia has much shorter internodes and a flat habit, making it the lowest maintenance ground cover Westringia.
Testing in Canberra for cold tolerance shows it handles frost and cold well. It has performed very well in Sydney, handling its humidity.
The next step is to test it in Queensland and find out its wet feet tolerance. Pruning occassionally makes this plant even tighter in appearance.
Low Horizon™ Westringia is a great companion for the Grey Box™ plant and Lomandra varieties, which look so good next to Westringias.
