Product Description

‘Silver Sheen’ is a hardy large evergreen shrub with small green foliage set against almost black stems. It’s used for hedging and screening and loves a good prune. It can be clipped very tight and kept narrow for formal gardens or lightly pruned for a softer effect. ‘Silver Sheen’ grows to 5mts tall and 2 – 3mts wide but is best at 2 – 3mts tall and 1 – 1.5mts wide.

‘Silver Sheen’ will grow in full sun or part shade and grows best in well drained, fertile soil but will tolerate almost all soil types. Hardy to light frost, it is however recommended to mulch well and supply summer water to ensure a lush plant.
