(kop ROS muh)

Tried & True Coprosma


Coprosma repens

This amazing cultivar with its jewel-toned foliage is native to New Zealand, Australia, and the South Pacific. Coprosma is a tender evergreen plant (min 40-50°F/ 7-10°C) grown primarily as a colour and structure plant. The shiny, smooth, and glossy leaves are outstanding hence the New Zealanders affectionately call it the Mirror Plant. Suited for mild climates, it is low maintenance, easy to grow, and tolerates coastal conditions. Coprosma is ideal for borders, rock gardens, garden beds, and containers for balconies, decks, and patio. Deer resistant.

It would be an outstanding plant for tropical gardens and with its tidy habit, it would be suitable for bonsai applications. In the Pacific Northwest, it is primarily grown as an annual or  brought indoors in the fall as a houseplant.
