Garrya elliptica (Large Plant)

Silk-tassel Bush

Hardy Shrub

Garrya elliptica is a wall shrub for a sunny or shady position, so is suitable for north-facing and east-facing walls. The Silk Tassel Shrub is hugely attractive and easy to grow, and will hold itself against a wall with very little support.

Garrya is evergreen, with tough foliage, and fantastic winter hanging catkins. Grow as a wall shrub, informal hedge or free-standing shrub. Garrya is easy to grow, frost hardy and good for small gardens and beginners. Height and Spread: 4m (13').

Grow Garrya in sun or partial shade, but take care to avoid exposed, windy sites, as this could cause leaf scorch. Garrya has excellent shade tolerance, so is good on north or east-facing walls. Plant in well-drained soil.
The Silk Tassel Bush requires light pruning each year, during the spring. For wall-trained shrubs, tie in shoots to create a framework, and trim back any wayward sideshoots. Free-standing shrubs require very little pruning, just trim to tidy up the plants each year.
