Outstanding Features

Dense bushy foliage makes Malay Dwarf Variegated the perfect replacement for traditional hedging plants. It has a mass of small dark green leaves with white strips, giving it a silvery appearance. It is fast growing and can withstand most soil types. It grows in a tight clump so can handle a retained environment such as a pot or raised garden.

Product Description

Malay Dwarf Variegated is the most popular choice as a hedging plant, as it is able to be hedged to a desirable size, or left to grow to its full height then square off the sides. Because of the soft foliage and lateral branches Malay Dwarf Variegated is a popular choice for child care centres and schools. Planted strategically and once grown to a decent height tunnels can be cut amongst them creating a wonderful environment for children to play in. Can also be used as a low screen, and is popular as a dust and noise barrier along roads.

            Recommended Plant Spacings to create a full screen: 1 to 1.5m
