Morning Light Coast Rosemary

Westringia fruticosa 'Morning Light'

A remarkably tough and versatile Australian native evergreen shrub growing as a compact mound of silvery-green, rosemary-like leaves with variegated white edges. Tiny white flowers speckle the foliage beginning in midwinter, heaviest during spring. Highly adaptive and tolerant of tough spots in the landscape, this is a choice plant for coastal gardens.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
