GRISELINIA GONE WILD

Used extensively by vineyards in the famous Marlborough Wine Region to protect the grapes from wind and weather, it’s also a popular plant for use at beach resorts.

This amazing evergreen shrub has a thing for stiff breezes and salt–laden ocean air. Called “Kapuka” by the Maori, Griselinia has alternate, smooth–edged, glossy oval leaves and short flower panicles that bear up to one hundred tiny yellow flower sepals, but no petals. Berries are small, dark purple and edible but bitter—best leave them for the birds.

Likes well–drained soil.
