Naringa

Westringia 'WES01'

By Katrina Layt

Naringa is a tough, and the best hedging form of Westringia. It is a much tidier form as it is the only Westringia with upright growth rather than horizontal. This makes it perfect for a hedge in a hurry as it keeps a great shape with half the pruning of other Westringias. Naringa also looks beautiful if left unpruned because of its naturally tidy form, but it benefits from a prune every 1-2 years. It does not get scraggly like the common Westringia.

Naringa flowers profusely in spring and regularly at other times with lilac flowers. It grows to 6-7 feet tall (3 feet with pruning) with a 2-3 feet spread and can be kept pruned at much lower heights as seen in the photo on the right.


Naringa is suitable for use along driveways or fence lines with minimal pruning as a hedge. It is also suitable for mass landscape plantings or as an individual feature planting. It can be used for screening with a very dense habit and is suitable for roadside plantings and windy coastal positions.

Naringa prefers a full sun to part shade position. Naringa has excellent drought and frost tolerance and tolerates a wide range of soil and climatic conditions. Naringa prefers sandy to well drained clay soils. It is part of the new Dig in ™ Shrubs and Ground Covers range.
