Product Description

The ideal Australian native hedge!

Bred in Australia by leading native experts 'Native Plant Wholesalers' for Australian conditions.

This plant is the perfect alternative to traditional English Box hedging!

Leptospermum ‘Fore Shore’ offers the perfect planting solution for coastal sites buffeted by strong winds and salt spray, having shown resilience to even the harshest of coastal conditions. That said, it is equally as happy in all Australian gardens, landscapes and containers.

‘Fore Shore’ thrives in full sun and performs well throughout extended dry periods. This variety is also frost tolerant. The grey green foliage of ‘Fore Shore’ is livened up by the bronze tones of the new growth. Highly recommended for pool sides, low hedging and borders, small spaces and coastal sites.

  • Hardy coastal performer
  • Versatile in landscape applications
  • Ideal for filling narrow or small spaces
  • Small gardens, patios and courtyards
  • Frost hardy
