Also known as New Zealand Privet or New Zealand Broadleaf, this is a wonderfully diverse hedging plant suited to coastal situations, as well as inland positions.

Griselinia littoralis hedging (New Zealand Privet) description

Griselinia littoralis hedge plants have lovely, soft, green foliage which is oval-shaped and glossy. Due to its evergreen nature, Griselinia hedging offers year-round privacy screening, whilst providing shelter from noise pollution and winds. This is an ideal choice for seaside locations, as the hardy foliage can tolerate harsh weather conditions. 

Best uses for Griselinia hedge plants

Griselinia littoralis is perfect for formal hedging as it can be clipped into a fairly compact, neat shape. It also works well when left to develop a more natural form, great for a relaxed aesthetic, as Griselinia hedging is attractive when left a little bushy. Griselinia hedge plants are suited to coastal sites, adding to the popularity of this species. New Zealand Privet can handle most UK climates, apart from those that experience extremely cold temperatures; Oleaster would be a better choice in these conditions.

Combine Griselinia littoralis with

New Zealand Privet can be combined with the variegated variety of Griselinia littoralis; Dixon's Cream for a brighter look, or grown alone as a classic, feature hedge, that would make an attractive addition to any garden.

With an average growth rate, your Griselinia littoralis hedge will achieve about 30cm of growth a year. The height of Griselinia hedging varies between 1.5m - 6m, and can be controlled with trimming to meet your desired height.

The vast majority of our Griselinia hedge plants are grown in the UK by professionals with generations of nursery expertise; however, on the odd occasion, we may need to source New Zealand Privet from a specialist nursery abroad.

This evergreen hedging can on occasion also display small purple fruits in the winter once established, delivering a rare and tasty treat for birds and giving Griselinia littoralis added wildlife interest.

Of the 44 plants I ordered, eight were considerably undersized. The rest were OK and look healthy enough to be fair.

If there were no stars, that's what I would have given. The plants looked tired when they arrived, leaves covered in dried mud. Although planted out immediately, they have not improved and I assume that 9/10 will die if not already dead.

Griselinia littoralis hedge plant

Unfortunately, 3-4 potted plants had been thrown around in the box and had broken tops. Managed to salvage 3 plants by putting them back in pots with all the compost added again. Seems to me that the courier service is not reading signs on the box stating ' Keep upright'.

Much higher percentage of smaller size plants than larger and no extras to replace plants damaged in transit as was the case with previous orders I have had.
