Westringia fruticosa Zena

Like to keep it close to home? The Westringa Zena is an Australian native and it’s a good one too.

Zena is a low growing evergreen shrub that tends to grow in a dense rounded mound. Its foliage is grey-green and it pops up pretty pale mauve to white flowers in the warmer months.

Despite the prettiness, it’s a tough ‘un.  It’ll take coastal areas in its stride, and tolerates drought and light frosts once established.

Use this as a low growing hedge, maybe alongside a path, or mass plant to add texture and colour. It’s really versatile.

Zena likes sun and free-draining moist soil, so if you put some mulch around the roots and remember to water it well until established you’ll have a plant that’ll last years.

If you trim back new growth after the flowers have finished it’ll stay small and compact - otherwise just let it do its thing and it’ll grow to about a metre high.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I make a great low hedge if I do say so or happy to go free form.

  • I grow to:  I’ll grow up to a metre in height if you don’t trim me back.  

  • I am currently: 15-20cm

  • Where to place me:  In full sun

  • How far to space me:  30cms apart for a quickly forming tight hedge, but up to 50cms if you don’t mind waiting.

  • Soil Conditions:  Moist but well-drained, please. I also like a nice layer of mulch (away from my stem) and a feed of slow release fertiliser in spring.

Beautifully grown and mature in size with developed roots and guaranteed sun hardened. These plants can be inserted straight into the ground and make an excellent garden plant.

We carefully package your plants into a custom size box to ensure safe transport and a healthy plant delivered to your door.
