Evergreen, Shrubs, Trees

GRISELINIA

Native to New Zealand. Upright form and thick, leathery, lustrous green leaves make these always look well groomed, whether grown as evergreen trees or shrubs. Flowers and fruit are insignificant. Good near swimming pools.

Griselinia littoralis

A 50-ft. tree in New Zealand, but often seen as a 10-ft.-high shrub of equal spread. Leaves are roundish, to 4 in. long. With regular moisture, it can reach 8 ft. in 3 years. Dense, compact screen or windbreak. Fine beach plant, good espalier.

‘Dixon’s Cream’ and ‘Variegata’ have leaves marked with cream.
