//Hedging Plants

Hedging is a perfect way to bring structure and background colour to a garden, whilst creating a barrier, and in most cases privacy from neighbours. We grow many thousands of hedging plants here on our outside beds each year, and so can supply a hedge for the smallest of gardens or provide coverage across acres of land. Our hedging is hardy, and able to withstand salt-laden winds, a common requirement for gardens down here in Cornwall, near the coast.

The hedging we grow is based on our own experience of what makes a truly great hedge (good growth habit, disease resistance, aesthetically pleasing etc) and very importantly, what can withstand the harshest of weather conditions, particularly the winds, most often posing the greatest challenge to gardens both inland and especially on our Cornish coastline – and the coastline around the UK.

  • griselinia-littoralis-product

    Griselinia littoralis

    £6.95£35.95
    ONLY 5 LITRE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ONLINE.
    Griselinia littoralis is a fast growing evergreen with apple green leaves, hardy to at least -10°C. It will withstand salt laden winds on the seafront in sheltered or enclosed estuaries like St. Mawes and Falmouth in Cornwall, but in exposed positions will need to be positioned several hundred feet from the sea.
    For extremely exposed coastal sites like Land’s End, and Lizard Point in Cornwall, we would recommend the tougher Elaeagnus ebbingei or Olearia virgata Laxifolia.

    Euonymus japonicus Microphyllus

    £8.50£24.95
    Available in a 3 litre or a 10 litre pot. Euonymus japonicus Microphyllus is an evergreen, densely bushy, rounded shrub with dark green leaves. A great alternative to Buxus (prone to box blight and other pests and diseases), it can provide a great low screen or box hedge when plants are positioned next to each other. Low maintenance, with a compact growth habit, this variety will reach only a maximum of 1m/3.3ft tall and wide eventually, spreading right to ground level. It is well suited to trimming to a desirable shape, making maintenance very easy indeed. Variegated gold leaf highlights and small greenish-white flowers in early summer offer added interest. Hardier than some Euonymus varieties it is an excellent option for hedging, or in and around borders. A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Euonymus japonicus Microphyllus hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).

  • Olearia Laxifolia

    Olearia Laxifolia

    £9.95£25.00
    Olearia virgata Laxifolia has become a firm favourite with us here at Trevena Cross Nurseries and is planted on our own land as screening. Perhaps not as well known or as well understood as some other hedging types, we are keen to promote its merits as a fantastic grower! We have come across nothing so tough, or so quick to form a decent screen or hedge. Olearia traversii is another great coastal hedge we recommend.
  • Olearia traversii hedging plantsOlearia traversii five litre plant

    Olearia traversii

    £9.95£25.00
    Available in a 4 litre or 10 litre pot. Olearia traversii is a tough, quick growing, upright evergreen shrub, and ideal as a hedging plant when used in multiples. It displays glossy green leaves, which are silvery-white on the undersides, creating a lovely two-tone effect. Inconspicuous daisy-like flowers bloom on panicles in early summer. It particularly makes a great coastal hedge, due to its tolerance of salt winds and dry, sandy soils. A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Olearia traversii hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).
  • Prunus Genolia foliagePrunus Genolia plant picture
    Available in a 5 litre pot. A variety of Cherry Laurel, Prunus laurocerasus Genolia is a Swiss evergreen shrub, ideal for mass planting as hedging or screening due to its dense, erect, columnar growing habit. Slower growing than common laurel, it displays shiny, dark green, fairly elongated foliage and in spring bears erect racemes/clusters of white flowers, which are attractive to bees and other wildlife. In autumn, some glossy black (inedible) fruits and (poisonous if eaten) seed capsules follow. It’s compact growth forms a narrow hedge, perfect for the smaller garden or where space is an issue. Trimming and pruning requirements are also reduced as a result. A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Prunus laurocerasus Genolia hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).
  • Griselinia Green Horizon plantGriselinia Green Horizon product picture
    Out of Stock
    Available in a 5 litre pot.
    Similar to the standard Griselinia, but with darker green, glossy leaves, Griselinia Green Horizon is a fast growing evergreen, hardy to at least -10°C to -12°C. It will withstand a coastal position and salt laden winds well but as with the standard and other variations of Griselinia, prefers a more sheltered estuary or inlet like St Mawes or Falmouth in Cornwall. In more exposed locations, Griselinia Green Horizon will need to be positioned several hundred feet from the sea, and for extremely exposed coastal sites like Land’s End, and Lizard Point in Cornwall, we would recommend the tougher Elaeagnus or Olearia hedging types.

  • Sea of Griselinia Green JewelGriselinia Green Jewel product picture
    Available in a 5 litre pot.
    A more subtle variation in colour than Griselinia Variegata, Griselinia Green Jewel displays bright, glossy green leaves, splashed cream margins, and grey undertones across the leaf. The leaves tend to be slightly more pointed than the rounder leaf of Variegata too.
    Like the other Griselinia varieties, it tolerates a coastal position and salt laden winds very well, however it prefers more enclosed/sheltered estuaries. Very exposed locations would be better suited to the tougher Elaeagnus or Olearia hedging types.

  • Griselinia Variegata leaves close upGriselinia Variegata plants
    Available in a 5 litre pot. A slower growing Griselinia, this attractive variety grows about 30cm / 1ft a year, if fed with a very good slow release fertiliser like Trevena Cross Fertiliser, making it very suitable for smaller sized hedges. It's attractive variegation is displayed on leaves that tend to be rounder in shape than on it's close relative Griselinia Green Jewel. Like the standard Griselinia, it will withstand salt laden winds but will only tolerate a seafront position if located in a sheltered estuary or inlet, like St Mawes or Falmouth in Cornwall. In exposed locations, Griselinia would need to be positioned several hundred feet away from the sea or for extremely exposed coastal sites like Land’s End, and Lizard Point in Cornwall, we would recommend an alternative like the tougher Elaeagnus or Olearia traversii. A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Griselinia Variegata hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).
