Coprosma ("Mirror Plant")

Coprosmas are evergreen shrubs from New Zealand that are grown for their colorful glossy leaves. Some varieties are used in mild climates as ground covers. All do very well in coastal areas as they are tolerant of salt spray. Plant in full sun to light shade, more shade the further inland. Give well drained soil with regular watering. They become drought resistant with age. Leaf color more intense in the autumn and winter. Flowers are insignificant. Hardy to low 20's for brief periods. USDA Zones 9 -11. Although they are usually considered landscape plants, they are excellent long-lived house plants for the amateur. Indoors they should be grown in a bright position. Those with tiny leaves are ideal as bonsai plants.
