Westringia Glabra Cadabra: is a member of the Lamiaceae family in company with the Prostantheras and culinary mints.
“Glabra Cadabra” is a hybrid whose parents said to be Westringia fruticosa and Westringia glabra.
Westringia Glabra Cadabra will develop into a dense shrub about 1.5 metres high by the same width. The leaves are glossy and carried in whorls of four around the stems.
Violet flowers are carried in clusters during spring with sporadic flowering at other times. Both foliage and flowers are attractive features.
Light pruning will keep plants dense, bushy and improve flowering.
We have a number of specimens in our gardens at Yallaroo. They have proved to be hardy, free-flowering and cope with drought and frost.
Westringia Glabra Cadabra could be grown in a low, informal hedge together with other Westringias. We would suggest Westringia fruticosa and Westringia Wynyabbie Gem as companions for “Glabra Cadabra.
Propagate from cuttings. They will produce roots rapidly.
