at Digging Dog

Westringia

Westringia fruticosa ‘Smokey’ full sun  partial shade

With soft silvery shades and a fine texture, this rugged Australian native has a smoky allure. Petite evergreen leaves—narrow, pointed and emargined in cream—crowd a well-mannered, low growing twiggy frame. Just right for a hedge that’s not so tall, ‘Smokey’s compact habit naturally sculpts a perfect globe, withstanding drought once established, and seaside conditions.

Let the versatile Coast Rosemary settle in amongst dry-loving companions such as Cistus, Lavandula, grasses, and Salvia ‘Aromas’, and enjoy the subtle charm of its two lipped white flowers nearly all year round.

Blooms May–November.

Size: 4'–6' high x 4'–5' wide; hardy to zone 8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
