A multitude of plant families fall under this enormously broad umbrella. Distinguished from trees generally by their smaller height and multiple stems, shrubs take on a vast array of shapes and forms, and can be evergreen or deciduous. We have an enormous range of shrubs, the majority of which are grown on site in our independent 32 acre nursery.

Only a few can be found in our online shop, due to constantly changing stock levels, but to browse our complete range, pay us a visit in person and ‘experience’ Trevena Cross at its best!

  • Corokia x virgata Sunsplash foliageCorokia x virgata Sunsplash - Trevena Cross
    Out of Stock
    Corokia x virgata Sunsplash (1.2-1.5m height and spread) is part of our coastal plant collection and it is a great one for seaside planting - tolerating salt laden winds well. It is evergreen for year round interest, with green-yellow and cream variegated foliage, sometimes flushed orange, and small star shaped yellow flowers in spring, followed by shiny orange-red berries in autumn. It works well as a low hedge, due to its compact, upright growing habit too. Enjoys a well drained, fertile soil in a sunny, ideally sheltered position.
  • Griselinia-Redge

    Griselinia Redge

    Available in a 2 litre pot and a 5 litre pot. Griselinia Redge is an evergreen, compact grower with attractive glossy green leaves, offset by dark coloured leaf stalks and stems. It could be considered more shrubby growing than the standard variety, but also makes a fantastic hedge with its better branching and strong healthy roots, resistant to disease. Slower growing than the standard it grows around 30cm a year, and is therefore a great one for a lower hedge, smaller garden or even container cultivation. It is reported hardy down to around -10°C, and 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 Olearia traversii Compacta over Griselinia littoralis Redge, although Griselinia is a super choice for most locations. A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Griselinia Redge hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).
  • Hypericum Hidcote yellow flowerHypericum Hidcote at Trevena Cross
    Out of Stock
    Also known as St John's Wort, Hypericum Hidcote is a reliable grower, bearing masses of golden yellow flowers (around 5cm in diameter) through summer and into autumn. Its dense and bushy habit (1.5m height and spread) makes it perfect in a border with other shrubs or a mixed border with perennials. It grows well in moist but well drained soil, in full sun or partial shade, ideally somewhere sheltered, protected from cold, drying winds. It is also attractive to bees - an added bonus!
  • Pittosporum Tom Thumb
    Out of Stock
    Pittosporum tenuifolium Tom Thumb is a compact, rounded shrub with attractive small, dark purple leaves, which contrasts strikingly with its light green young growth. Grown for its foliage, its slow growing nature suits a smaller space (ultimate height and spread only up to 1m). It should be grown in a sheltered spot in full sun or part shade, in a moist but well drained soil.
  • Prostanthera rotundifolia Rosea
    Out of Stock
    Also known as the Australian Mint Bush, this bushy, evergreen shrub has strongly mint-scented dark green leaves and an abundance of pretty pale rose pink flowers (darker at the centre) through a long flowering season in late spring-early summer. It can grow up to 2.5m in the right conditions, with a spread of around 1.5m after a number of years. It should be grown in a sunny sheltered position in a moist but well drained soil.
