Griselinia 'Whenuapai' Details

Griselinia ‘Whenuapai’, commonly known as Kapuka or Broadleaf, is a fast-growing, NZ native shrub that carries very aesthetic, glossy, dark green leaves. The foliage on this evergreen is held densely as it grows to 3 m tall and 2 m wide. Best results with this Broadleaf are achieved when it is grown in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. It is tolerant of wind, coastal conditions, dry periods, cool climates, and frost. Griselinia ‘Whenuapai’ is commonly trimmed into a fabulous hedge, included in a mixed planting, used for screening, grown as a backdrop for smaller plants, or planted around water features. This Kapuka is a dependable plant in any garden which can tolerate tough conditions and still look great. For a Griselinia hedge with ‘Whenuapai’, space plants 50 cm apart.
