Hedging Types at Art's Nursery

Coniferous, Broad Leaf Evergreen & Deciduous Hedging Trees

Posted By: in Trees

We have lots of hedging varieities at our 10 acre Nursery in Surrey! Join Laurelle in today's video as she shows and shares about the different varieities of Coniferous, Broad Leaf Evergreen & Deciduous Hedging Trees at Art's Nursery.

Coniferous Hedging

1. Thuja Occidentalis

Slender upgright evergreen tree commonly used in hedging in both small yards and large yards. It has a lovely slender foot print that won’t eat up a lot of your yard. Maintains it’s fresh green colour throughout the year. Can be planted 2 to 3 feet on centre. Thrives in at least 6 hours of full sun.

2. Yew Trees

Slender in shape with a lovely deep dark colour and can handle less light than any other hedging type. This moderate growing coniferous can be used as a stand alone focal point or can be hedged as well.

3. Thuja Plicata Excelsa

If you’re looking for a very fast growing hedge, both vertically and horizontally the Thuja Plicata Excelsa is for you! Keep in mind that this tree, if left unpruned, has the potential of reaching 90 feet plus. Trimming and pruning maintenance must be done at least twice a year to maintain desired height and width.

Broad Leaf Evergreen Hedging

1. Portugese Laurel or prunus lusitanica

A lovely glossy evergreen hedging plant that can be hedged, pleached or shaped. The stems are a lovely red colour and the leaves are a deep dark green colour, great for wider hedge or wall and can be used as a topiary as well. Planting is 3 – 5 feet centre to centre and can take fairly low light and 4 hours of sun.

2. Prunus laurocerasus

A bright grass green foliage with golden stems, can be planted 3 – 5 feet on centre. Great for a wider hedge.

3. Boxwood Varieities

With these broad leaf evergreen shrubs you can expect slow to moderate growth. They thrive in at least 6 hours of sun. Can be hedged, topiaried, spiraled and can easily be grown in a container.

4. Japanese Convex Holly ilex crenata convexa

Has all the attributes of boxwood boasting slightly faster growth than boxwood. Expect lovely blue/black berries. Can be hedged or shaped to your desire.

5. Camelia

An unusual hedge that can be mid sized for lower light conditions. Glossy deep green with stunning camelia blossoms in late winter to Spring.

Deciduous Hedging

1. Privet lagustrum

Traditionally used for hedging in many English country gardens. Can be shaped and clipped to from low to medium sized hedges. Thrives in at least 6 hours a day.

2. Smoke Bush cotinus coggygria

A great stand alone specimen or as part of a mixed informal deciduous hedge.

3. Burning Bush euonymus alatus

Spectacular fall colour that can form a midsized, lose informal hedge, or as part of a mixed deciduous hedge.
