    A dense, upright evergreen shrub with lustrous, grey-green streaked, bright apple-green leaves, with irregular, creamy-white margins. This variegated form of griselinia is a marvellous focal point for a sheltered, sunny, mixed or shrub border. Perfect for a warm coastal garden, it makes a wonderful partner for the plain dark green light reflecting leaves of Mexican orange blossom.

  • Garden care: In April or May lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant
