Description

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. 5 plants will cover a 1m length, 10 plants will cover a 2m length, and 20 plants will cover a 4m length. When planting, set out in a zig-zag style to encourage a thick and bushy hedge.

Care Tips

Medium sized hedging that can be easily clipped and maintained to 1.5m. Growth rate 30 - 60cm per year. Prune and trim in late winter to early spring but be careful not to prune to severely as growth may become stunted.
