Griselinia 'Dixon's Cream' Hedge Plants Description
Griselinia littoralis variegata also known as Griselinia 'Dixon's Cream' is an attractive variegated from of New Zealand Privet. It is a little less hardy than the non-variegated variety Griselinia littoralis, and so it will grow best in a sunny, sheltered site.
Griselinia Dixon's Cream likes a light well-drained soil and is a hedging variety that is particularly suited to coastal areas. It has an average growth rate of approx. 20-40cm per annum. We recommend removing any stems that revert to green foliage in order to retain the variegated foliage only.
Griselinia Dixon's Cream plants are available all year round.
We have a huge range of variegated species with year round cover in our evergreen section and endless colourful choices in our colourful foliage section.
Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
Griselinia Dixons Cream is best trimmed to shape with secateurs in late Spring and early Summer, although it will tolerate pruning with shears. It can also be trimmed again in August- early September if needed.
