Griselinia

Search Griselinia
Griselinia is a relatively small family of evergreen shrubs with only 6 species in the family. They are indigenous to Chile and NZ and it is interesting to note that along with Griselinia many of our native plants have a close association with those found in Chile. Something for further discussion after a bit more research!

Griselinia littoralis or Kapuka is a deservedly popular evergreen shrub found throughout NZ. The name 'littoralis' means'of the seashore' so that's a sure indication that this shrub will do well in coastal conditions. Actually, Griselinia littoralis does well in just about any conditions including wind, cold, sun or part shade. Extreme harsh frost and a permanently soggy, wet soil will probably cause them to sulk a little but even under those conditions, the plants are amazingly tolerant.

CLICK TO ENLARGE

Native. The gorgeous, large glossy leaves of this evergreen shrub are ideal for adding a lush tropical look to the garden. Undemanding and tolerant of wind, and coastal conditions but not harsh frost. Will grow quite large if left to its own devices but trims well. Can be used for hedging.

The common name of this shrub is Puka or Akapuka not to be confused with Meryta which is also a native commonly called Puka. See that's why we use those hard to say Latin names.
