Griselinia littoralis is a fast growing evergreen with apple green leaves, hardy to at least -10°C. It will withstand salt laden winds but not right on the seafront if in a very exposed position – it will need to be positioned several hundred feet from the sea in such cases. In more sheltered or enclosed estuaries like St. Mawes and Falmouth in Cornwall, they will grow quite happily right on the seafront. For extremely exposed coastal sites like Land’s End, and Lizard Point in Cornwall, we would recommend the tougher Elaeagnus ebbingei or Olearia virgata Laxifolia.
Upright growing, this variety forms a thin hedge that can be trimmed to 6-8ft and a width of only 60cm/2ft, so it won’t take up a large part of your garden.
It grows 60-90cm/2-3ft a year if fed with a very good slow release fertiliser like Trevena Cross Fertiliser, with an ultimate height of 8m/26ft, which can of course be trimmed to much smaller heights, even 1-2m/3-6.5ft can look very neat.
They should be planted 40-90cm/18inches-3ft apart from one another - although they can be planted further apart if you do not mind waiting longer for them to form a solid hedge (or closer for much smaller plants like these 9cm ones).
