Best Fast-Growing Hedge Plants

Bestfastgrowinghedgeplants - Garden Express Australia

The best fast-growing hedge plants for your garden will depend on the effect you want to create. From privacy screening or covering an unsightly facade to formal borders and path edging, the possibilities are endless.

Regardless of what type of hedge you’re aiming for, you’re probably hoping to see it become established sooner rather than later. This needs to be balanced with creating a hedge that you’re able to maintain and enjoy in the long term. Selecting the right plant varieties for your chosen purpose and positioning is key to achieving this.

Still, if you’re looking for quick results, it’s worth considering these fast-growing hedge plants for the job. Covering a range of heights, foliage colours and growing habits, these plants are popular choices that work well in many Australian gardens.

Vibrant and Hardy

Photinia robusta makes for a striking, low-maintenance fence line; in fact all of the Photinias make wonderful larger hedges. New foliage starts out tonings of red before maturing to dark, glossy green. Clipping throughout the year encourages repeated rounds of this colourful display, and white flowers in spring complete the show. Once established, it’s a hardy plant that’s forgiving of frost and drought.  For warmer more humid climates try Photinia Red Robin as this variety will cope better with humidity than any of the others.

Native Stunner

Weeping Lilly Pilly is a gracefully formed shrub native to parts of NSW and Queensland. With its dense canopy of weeping foliage, it’s great for a softer, informal hedge line or windbreak.  Like all Lilly Pillies features distinctive pink fruits and white summer flowers, along with attractive foliage that grows in pink before maturing to green.

Easy Screening

Pittosporum Silver Sheen, with its attractive silvery foliage, makes a great privacy screen – ideal for keeping nosy neighbours at bay. Dense and tall-growing, it requires minimal pruning and watering once established, so it’s a great low maintenance solution. It does, however, respond well to pruning if a more formal look is desired.

Fragrant Flowering

Mexican Orange Blossom sports masses of fragrant, citrus-like white blooms from late spring to early summer, with flowering often continuing into autumn. This delightful display makes it perfect for screening outdoor seating and entertaining areas. Easy to grow, it can be pruned into formal shapes or left natural for a free-form look, and will tolerate and grow well in most climates and soils.
