This is a tough and sturdy shrub that grows upright and branches out, with dense grey-white foliage. The foliage is fragrant when crushed and was used by early settlers as a herb, who called it wild Rosemary.

The shrub produces yellow-white-cream flowers between January and July or November and December, depending on the area it grows in.

It is salt tolerant and ideal for coastal regions.

The shrub is native to much of the Western Australian coastal strip, from Shark Bay in the north to the southern coast, and extending into South Australia.

It prefers light to medium well-drained soil.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia, seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoiding the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 15-20°C

  1. Sow seed on the surface of a porous seed-raising mix. The seed will lodge in the pores of the mix once watered.
  2. Sprinkle a very light covering of the seed-raising mix over the seed if required to hold the seed in place. Do not bury the seed deeply.
  3. Water with a fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed.
  4. Place in a warm, shaded, or semi-shaded position to avoid dying out.
  5. Keep warm & moist, and avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.
  6. Germination generally occurs in around 14-42 days in the right condition.

General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they are discarded.
