Naringa™ Westringia hybrid ‘WES01’ PBR
- Very fast establishing hedge
- Tidier form with much less pruning than other Westringias
- Masses of mauve flowers
Description: Naringa™ Westringia is the best hedging Westringia available for medium to tall hedges. Tidy form with masses of mauve coloured flowers in spring and regularly at other times.
Needs pruning about half as much as other Westringias, and in a natural setting, probably not at all.
Size: 1m high x 60cm wide pruned; 2.2m high x 1.5m wide unpruned.
Planting Density: 1-2 plants per m², 1-2 plants per linear metre.
Uses: Tidy hedging or specimen plant.
Position: Full sun to part shade. Suits sandy to well drained clay soils, avoid wet feet and depressed planting areas. Tolerates cold and drought.
Care: 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.
Either leave unpruned in its tidy natural form or prune to shape 1-3 times a year after flowering (this depends on your requirements, more frequent pruning will provide a tidier hedge/shape).
Where it works: NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA and South East QLD (not suited to Northern QLD).
