Griselinia 'Ardmore Emerald' Details

Griselinia littoralis ‘Ardmore Emerald’, commonly known as Kapuka or NZ Broadleaf, is a fast growing, small, NZ native tree and has a dense growth habit which makes it perfect for as a hedge. The foliage comprises dark green, glossy leaves with light yellow veins.  Small, green flowers in spring are followed by green-black fruits in autumn which are great for attracting birds. Left untrimmed, this NZ Broadleaf will grow to 8 m tall and 4 m wide, but it is often clipped to sizes much less than this. It grows best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site and will tolerate coastal conditions, wind, and frost. Griselinia littoralis ‘Ardmore Emerald’ is perfect for hedging and screening but is also often grown as a specimen, included in tropical gardens, or used as a backdrop for smaller plants. The gorgeous foliage and versatility of this plant makes it a popular choice. For hedging, space plants 50 cm apart.
