Product Description

Alnus glutinosa, also referred to as the Alder hedging plant, is a popular deciduous shurb with a neat column shaped, upright habit that makes this an excellent choice for hedging. It is very hardy by its natural habit making it perfect for colder pa of the country while also suitable for very wet conditions. The common alder hedge is vigorous and if left alone could grow as much as 8-12m tall, but fear not as regular prunning will easily maintain a height of 2-3m. Supplied as 40-80cm bare rooted plants depending on the time of the year. The stunning green foliage from spring through to autumn is supplemented by grey-purple bud and yellow catkins follow through late winter and early spring.
