Hedges and Borders
Picture of Buxus Green Gem
CLICK TO ENLARGE

A slow growing compact form of Box with a naturally rounded shape. In spring the fresh new growth is shaded a beautiful soft lime green turning to a darker glossy green on maturity. Easy to grow in sun or part shade. Evergreen.

'Green Gem' is the perfect choice for a low hedge as it doesn't need as much clipping as other Buxus due to its compact habit. Nice for topiary work too. Though 'Green Gem' is very tolerant and hardy it prefers not to have 'wet feet' in winter - quite understandable, I don't much like wet feet myself!

This native 'grass' is really tough and hardy tolerating cold winds and almost any soil. The brick-orange foliage looks very graceful as it waves and dances in the wind. Ideal for planting in large drifts. If the clumps become a little untidy just chop back hard for renewed vigour. Evergreen.

Picture of Pittosporum Silver Sheen
CLICK TO ENLARGE

NZ Native. This shrub is very well named - the tiny rounded leaves are a pale silvery green and certainly do seem to shimmer in the light. Forms a very nice background plant or can be used for hedging and topiary as it loves a regular hair-cut. Easy to grow in a sunny well drained spot. Evergreen.
