Green Sheen features vibrant green foliage with cream veins accentuated by dark purplish stems forming a neat upright shrub, making it ideal for hedging

Green Sheen is suitable for most well drained soils in full sun or partial shade and for best results, Green Sheen responds well to deep watering in dry periods,  liquid feeding with a seaweed based solution once every 3 months, an annual feed of ( just a handful or 2) of either dynamic lifter or seamungus and light prunings to encourage vigourous and dense growth, also prune lightly when young to establish strong root systems.

Green Sheen can grow 2- 4 metres tall by 2metres wide within a 5 – 10 year period depending on what size of plant you purchase and how often youy water, feed or prune them, sometmes faster, sometimes slower, depending on your care!!

Green Sheen can be used as an attractive foliage in flower arrangements, in a large garden bed as a feature plant or as a screen or hedge/ backdrop to other plants in the garden.

At current Green Sheen can be purchased by the public from  Paddys Plants, but can be purchased wholesale by other retail nurseries, landscapers and nursery trade from both Paddys Plants and Coolwyn Nurseries, this plant will not be available at weekend trash n treasure markets.
