Large, evergreen shrub with leathery green leaves. Excellent hedging plant for maritime exposure. Needs sheltered position inland. Upright, bushy growth habit. With regular trimming Griselinia hedges can be kept comparatively narrow where space is limited. Growth approx 30cm/ 1 ft per year. The best time to trim a Griselinia hedge is in late spring before the new growth starts but after the danger of very hard frosts has passed. One trim per year will keep your Griselinia hedge in good order, trim more frequently for a formal look. Overgrown Griselinia hedges and shrubs can be cut back hard at the same time of year and should regenerate quickly from the old wood, especially if a feed and mulch is applied at the same time to hasten the new growth.
