Westringia fruticosa ‘Smokey’
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.
Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high x 4' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

As Summer draws to a close....
September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.
Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer. Digging Dog's Early September 2017 Newsletter Link

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
