Green Hopseed (Dodonaea viscosa) serves as an excellent choice for landscaping needs, particularly as a screen, thriving in both full and partial sunlight. With its upright growth habit, this shrub can reach heights of up to 10 feet, though regular pruning allows for easy maintenance and size control to suit your preferences. Notably, the Green Hopseed Bush exhibits remarkable drought tolerance, especially when established through thorough watering upon planting in well-draining soil. Whether used as a standalone feature or as part of a larger garden design, Green Hopseed offers both aesthetic appeal and functional versatility.

Every time a plant is watered, the soil should be thoroughly saturated to a depth of at least 2 to 3 feet and at least as wide as a tree well. Very slow and deep watering is always recommended. During periods of extreme heat, we advise at least 1 additional time per week of watering for all varieties. For periods of heavy rain (1/2” or more) adjust accordingly by possibly skipping a watering session for that time.

Riviera Beach, FL

We wanted a water-wise hedge to plant for some privacy around our backyard. We back up to a busy road and have a neighbor on the side that likes to sit on his balcony. We addressed our issue with the nursery pros at Moon Valley and this was their suggestion. We planted 7 of these across the back and 4 on the side. Now when we're sitting on our patio we don't have to worry about our nosey neighbor, it has also help reduce road noise from the ones planted across the back.
