Griselinia littoralis

Griselinia littoralis


Description: Griselinia is grown for its fresh limey green glossy and leathery foliage.  Strong upright habit. Particularly popular in coastal regions as the thick fleshy leaves are tolerant of salt laden winds which will cause leaf burn on many other plants.

Uses: Useful for planting as a thick evergreen hedge in these locations.  Also good at the back of a border for background

Climate/Position: Full Sun/partial shade best if sheltered from cold winds.

Height/Spread: Up to 8 metres  x 5 meters

Soil Requirements: Suitable for all soils but semi-moist well-drained conditions preferred.

Pruning: Prune in summer. It can be trimmed to form a neat, compact hedge, or additionally can form a stand alone evergreen shrub which may not need pruning apart from any shaping as required.

Special Requirements:  May need protection from cold winter winds if not in a mild location.
