Description

Griselinia littoralis instant hedging is also sometimes known by the common name of ‘Broadleaf’. It is a native of the southern hemisphere and is predominantly from New Zealand, Chile and some parts of Brazil. It has a leathery leaf in both feel and look and has a very unusual colour, being a matt apple green and makes the perfect natural screening hedge in your landscaping project. As it comes from slightly more temperate climates than in the United Kingdom, it can be susceptible to frosts and cold winds, but is normally ok down to around minus 10C. Because of this susceptibility it is best planted in either coastal locations or sheltered inland areas and cities. It will form a very dense evergreen hedge and gives a great privacy screen.

For the best results plant into a good well drained soil, as sitting in a wet soil over winter will slow down the growth from it.

Griselinia littoralis instant hedging was introduced to the United Kingdom around 1850 and was given an Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1984.
