Hugely popular for its beautiful and truly brilliant autumn colours where the leaves change from dark green to a vibrant purplish-red and the bright pink flower capsules open up to reveal zingy orange fruits (inedible to humans). Easy to grow and incredibly tough, it makes a brilliant hedge, either planted alone or as part of a mixed species hedge and wildlife loves its leaves and fruits.
Our UK grown hedging plants are supplied as cell-grown saplings ready for immediate planting into their final positions. Cell-grown plants are known to have high establishment success rates with rapid early growth and are uniform and compact in size for quick and easy planting.
As a guide, use 5 plants per metre length. When planting, set out in a zig-zag style to encourage a thick and bushy hedge.
