Hi folks
Ran into this tree rock climbing today in South coast NSW on a beach cliff could anybody ID this species for me? They are incredible and in surplus along the coastal shores.

Hi James. I can't remember there botanical name, I only know them as coastal rosemary because of there look only. There wind swept nature would be great for a bonsai. I have collected a few of these and had no success so far, still trying to figure out why.
Good luck

Thanks Mark, yeah I collected the one in question.. it doesn't have a lot of roots which worries me. See how it goes, if we can figure it out there's potential for a lot of good material in future.

What have you tried Mate?

I soaked this is seasol for a few hours then into the hessian sack full of soil since I'm not at home yet.

Fingers crossed

I've only collected 5 altogether, I stop after the last one. 3 of them were from the coast line the other 2 were just garden material. All I can figure (only guessing) is they don't like root disturbance too much. After collection they seem to hang in there for awhile then slowly die off. Will be interesting if your one survives because I didn do the seasol thing, just potted them up and water.

Hmm well see how it goes then. Thanks for the info, I have a feeling they won't. I was reading articles on yamadori, did a few things wrong. Supposedly need a good amount of the plant's native soil and also shouldn't cut back the foliage because of the tree bio ability to make root hormones when the tree is out of balance.

Trial and error.. I think Craig mentioned ages ago that he collects cleros by cutting all the branches and keeping it in a tub of scoria and water for a week but memory is probably a bit off with that one.

Sounds like Westringia fruiticosa. Coastal rosemary
