Finally, a shrub with a name: Westringia longifolia

It is frustrating to not know your plants. As if shops and restaurants had no names. How to desribe to a friend where the coffee is really good or in which store window you saw that lovely dress on sale?

Luckily, some plants around our apartment block still wear their name tag. So I can firmly say that a very healthy-looking Westringia longifolia (of course, one of those native Australian plants I had never heard of before!) is in full bloom.
