Long-distance dispersal of Griselinia is possible because of certain adaptations of its seeds that make them well suited for dispersal by migratory birds (which are known to migrate long distances), including their sensitivity to dryness and their inability to germinate until the fleshy fruit has been removed (Burrows, 1995, 1999; Bryan et al.
A third scenario would involve assuming an origin of Griseliniaceae in South America, where five species of Griselinia are extant in Chile and Argentina (one of which also extends to southeastern Brazil).

SEASIDE loving hedge plants include escallonia, Griselinia
littoralis and sea buckthorne or Hippophae rhamnoides, which has silver leaves and orange berries.
of Griseliniacae, the female flowers are monosymmetric by their pseudomonomerous gynoecium (Kubitzki, 1963; Philipson, 1967).
, escallonia and olearia fall into this category and spring planting may be preferable unless the site is very sheltered.
Y Gwylly woodland gardens, adjoining Portmeirion village, takes up to 70 acres of the Aber peninsula with its rocky headlands and sandy coves, and is renowned for its rhododendrons, griselinia
littoralis, lomatia, maytenus boaria, olearia, bromeliads, Dicksonia fibrosa and echium pininana.
