Hi Nuno

I say you go for it. I have one (not as bonsai, but for spicing the food) for 5 years now and i dig it up every year and put it in a pot for over winter.
As you know they create nice bark structure and leafs are very much in scale....maybe you already checked google for "rosemary bonsai"...i think if you cut the young shoots regulary you can create nice pads or canopy.
I have seen some quite old specimen along the coast here that would look stunning as bonsai.
Good luck Very Happy

Best...

Hi GasperG,

I don't if you've noticed that I'm not asking about the rosemary 'rosmarinus officinalis'. Rosemary can become very nice bonsai and I already have one that I'm forming in the cascade style.

What I'd like to know is about westringia fruticosa, which is called coast rosemary but is not related to 'rosmarinus officinalis'. Westringia fruticosa is as australian bush but I've seen it for sale here in Portugal and it has really nice bark and the small leaves and flowers are very nice. I'd like to try one for bonsai but I don't see any picture of one used as bonsai or have seen it mentioned in any forum.

If anyone has worked with this species, please tell me about your experience.
