Griselinia littoralis is a fast growing, large evergreen shrub which is ideally suited to coastal conditions. It is an excellent hedging plant as it forms and neat and tidy hedge – ideal for creating a windbreak. Griselinia littoralis has light apple-green broadly ovate shaped leaves. Small yellow-green flowers are followed by purple fruits on the female plants where both sexes are grown together. It will grow in free drainage soil in full sun, but can tolerate partial shade too. It is easy to maintain and has an eventual height of 4-8m and spread of 2.5-4m. This shrub can be easily kept in shape.
