Rotundifolia will quickly give you a tall and substantial hedge. It is a fast growing evergreen with large, glossy green leaves, white flowers in spring and red berries in autumn but is usually grown for its foliage. It is a good windbreak and is shade tolerant.
Hedges within gardens create a softer, more wildlife friendly boundary and can provide a great seasonal display of flowers, berries and autumn colour. Even a small hedge can create your own little wildlife habitat. They can be close clipped or left a bit wilder, a mix of native varieties will give different periods of interest and a good nesting and winter food source for birds.
Planting distances vary from 30-60cm/1-2ft depending on the variety and the size of hedge required. For a denser hedge plant a staggered double row with 38cm/15in between rows and 45cm/18ins between plants.
Plant size is approximately 45-60cm on arrival.
