Selections for skinny hedges

Here are some hedging selections for super tight spaces.

Cupressus sempervirens 'glauca'

Italian Pencil Pine

A popular selection for framing driveways, the Italian Pencil Pine has dark dense foliage and grows in the narrowest of spaces. This is a popular selection all year round and we currenlty have good numbers in 20cm and 45 litre containers.

Thuja plicata 'Fastigiata'

Upright Western Red Cedar

This is another tree with a compact and upright growth habit and what we call a luscious deep green colouring. Easy to clip, we have good numbers in 40cm, 50 litres and ample supply in 150 litre bags for that instant large hedge.

Syzygium australe 'AATS' PBR Pinnacle TM'

A very narrow growing native Australian shrub. This Syzigium is a lovely compact, dense grower which requires very little pruning to maintain a narrow habit, making it ideal for screening and hedging in tight spaces. Foliage is glossy and deep green in colour with new growth being tinged in tones of red-brown. Small, white flowers appear in the warmer months, followed by fleshy pink-red fruits. This variety could easily be used as an Australian native alterative to the Italian pencil pines.

Syzygium australe 'SAN01 Straight and Narrow TM'

This Lilly Pilly is an alternative to the narrow growing 'Pinnacle' due to its dense foliage and naturally columnar form. Foliage is a mid-green colour and fruits are reddish-pink. As the name suggests it is a great selection for narrow spaces.

Callistemon viminalis 'CV01 Slim TM'

This is a narrow growing Bottlebrush great for tight planting spots. It provides all the usual colour and texture qualities of Callistemon, flowering from spring to autumn but with the benefit of being able to use to as a compact alternative in positions that are narrower. Flowers are red and numerous over the warmer months. Of course it can also be used as a screen or hedge to attract birds, bees and butterflies into the garden.
