Griselinia littoralis is a dense, evergreen shrub or small tree that can grow up to 20 meters tall in its natural habitat, but is usually smaller in cultivation. It has leathery, glossy leaves that are typically 6-12 cm long and 3-7 cm wide, with a smooth, slightly serrated margin. The leaves are dark green above and paler beneath and are borne on short, stout stalks.

The flowers of Griselinia littoralis are small and greenish-yellow and are borne in dense, axillary clusters in early summer. The fruit is a small, fleshy, greenish-white drupe that contains a single seed.

Griselinia littoralis is a popular ornamental plant in gardens and parks, where it is often used as a hedge or screen due to its dense growth habit and attractive foliage. It is tolerant of salt spray and is therefore well-suited to coastal locations. It can also be grown in containers and is suitable for topiary and bonsai.
