Dwarf Foliage Hedges

Looking for a low-growing compact hedge with evergreen, green or coloured leaves? These hedges are all about the foliage! (There may be tiny flowers that appear in between clips, but nothing showy, we promise). Will all grow naturally to around 1m or less, and most will clip to the exact height you want.
