Griselinia littoralis


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.

Product Description

Upright growing, Griselinia littoralis forms a thin hedge that can be trimmed to 6-8ft and a width of only 60cm/2ft, so it won’t take up a large part of your garden.
It grows 60-90cm/2-3ft a year if fed with a very good slow release fertiliser like Trevena Cross Fertiliser, with an ultimate height of 8m/26ft, which can of course be trimmed to much smaller heights, even 1-2m/3-6.5ft can look very neat.
Each specimen should be planted 40-90cm/18inches-3ft apart from one another – although they can be planted further apart if you do not mind waiting longer for them to form a solid hedge.
