Griselinia is a relatively small family of evergreen shrubs with only 6 species in the family. They are indigenous to Chile and NZ and it is interesting to note that along with Griselinia many of our native plants have a close association with those found in Chile. Something for further discussion after a bit more research!
Griselinia littoralis or Kapuka is a deservedly popular evergreen shrub found throughout NZ. The name 'littoralis' means'of the seashore' so that's a sure indication that this shrub will do well in coastal conditions. Actually, Griselinia littoralis does well in just about any conditions including wind, cold, sun or part shade. Extreme harsh frost and a permanently soggy, wet soil will probably cause them to sulk a little but even under those conditions, the plants are amazingly tolerant.
