(Award of Garden Merit)
Originating from New Zealand and South America
A striking evergreen, rounded shrub with thick, glossy, oval leaves, irregularly variegated in golden, cream and grey variegation, and held on green/yellow stalks and stems. Usually grown as a hedge, it does indeed make a most attractive windbreak or backdrop to a border, providing an excellent foil for darker leaved plants, and it is very salt and wind tolerant making it a good choice for coastal gardens. With a little pruning, Griselinia can be transformed into a superb little architectural, specimen evergreen tree. Hardy in all but the coldest regions of the UK.
Grow in light, fertile soil in sun.
