Griselinia Littoralis Variegata Hedging

Variegated New Zealand Privet, Griselinia littoralis variegata, is a form of Griselinia with a creamy-white margin on the leaves. It grows well on windy, sunny coastal sites and it is happy on any well drained soil. It is a good hedge plant and can also be grown as small specimen tree.
Variegated New Zealand Privet is good for hedges up to about 7 metres high.

Variegated New Zealand Privet hedge plants are only delivered pot-grown, year round.
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the pots aren't measured).

General description of Variegated New Zealand Privet plants:
This large, evergreen shrub has lush, thick leaves form an effective windbreak. Each leaf has a whitish margin that can cover half the leaf.
We really recommend Variegated Griselinia for planting in the full sun; it will tolerate a little shade, but this will slow its growth and may cause its variegated leaved to revert to green.
It will grow on any well drained soil, including shallow chalk and very poor, sandy soils. Griselinia is suitable for exposed, windy sites, but we recommend using Portugal Laurel instead if you live in Scotland or the North East coast of England.
Griselinia is resistant to honey fungus.

History & uses of Griselinia littoralis variegata
This plant was first imported from New Zealand in 1850. It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit and the Award of Merit for use in displays of cut stems.

I just wanted to let you know my plants have arrived today as promised. I have unpacked them and they are wonderful, I am so pleased with them. They are much bigger than I expected and in tip-top condition. Thank you so much. I also think they are really excellent value for money – I buy most of my plants on-line (living in Cornwall the choices are a bit limited) and I had looked for Hydrangea seemannii at my usual on-line supplier but they were so expensive I was a bit put off. Ten pounds per plant more (!) Then I searched around and found you – your plants were considerably cheaper and larger so I was a bit worried they might fall short of the mark. But… absolutely no worries on that front. In fact I bought two seemannii from the other supplier earlier this year (I think they are a very ‘useful’ plant, particularly for someone who lives in a walled garden) so can do a direct comparison. Interestingly, they are smaller than yours now even though they have been in the ground and well cared for, for more than six summer months. Many thanks, excellent service and terrific plants – I will be back..!Debbie Frost
