Alnus glutinosa is commonly known as 'Common Alder' and is an extremely popular UK native shrub hedge that displays dark green leaves. This plant also has a wonderful display of yellow/red catkins that form on the tree and will form brown cones. These plants are excellent for very wet areas of soil in your garden and can even be planted in coastal areas.

Common Alder prefers any type of soil even extremely wet conditions. Alnus grows at around 1-2 feet per year and will eventually get to 2-5 metres in height if left alone. These shrubs can be pruned in order to keep them tidy.
