Phillyrea angustifolia instant hedging plants originated from North Africa and Southern Europe and were known to be growing in the United Kingdom before 1600. Coming from these climates they prefer being grown with a South or South West aspect and ideally sheltered from the worst of the North or Easterly winds. However in a sheltered spot they are hardy down to minus 15 centigrade.
