griselinia littoralis ‘bantry bay’

Garinish Island GlengarriffGriselinia littoralis was planted for shelter long time ago. Former head gardener Murdo Mackenzie once spotted an unusual variegated leaf among the usually green leaves and used it’s twig to propagate it. This breed is nowadays know as Grisellinia littoralis ‘Bantry Bay’.

The normal griselinias unfortunately spread over the island and destroy one former path after the other. Especially the South going path as a continuation from the way coming from the Casita should be reactivated as there is a lovely garden surrounded by rockery. The weedy griselinias should be cleared on a regular weeding regime: while small they are very easy to pull.
