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.
