Gorse Hedging is very popular for its bright yellow, pea-like flowers that stand out against extremely spikey evergreen foliage. Suited to many situations including dry and coastal sites.
Gorse boasts golden yellow flowers from spring, right through to the winter. The green foliage makes a great screen and the sharp spines a useful intruder deterrent. The yellow, scented flowers are attractive to wildlife such as bees as they provide such a long season of nectar.
This evergreen hedging plant makes a good privacy screen, wind break and noise barrier. Gorse is also a wonderful intruder proof hedge, as it is dense in growth and fearfully spikey. It looks at home in natural settings such as informal garden hedging and provides year round interest to wildlife and humans alike.
Either grow alone to form a dense hedge or with other native hedging plants for a native hedge mix.
Ulex Europaeous has an average growth rate of approximately 20-40cm pa. Gorse is best for dense hedging of up to 3m.
