Coprosma

Valued for their handsome evergreen foliage and easy care even when the going gets tough, this well groomed genus hails from the Southern Hemisphere. Their rounded, leathery leaves are borne in opposite pairs and garb a fast growing, sun-loving frame that appreciates good drainage, handles drought, wards off deer and begs an easily viewed position anywhere fine foliar texture is appreciated.

Because of the handsome horizontal growth of its long slender stems, and the exceptionally elegant variegation of its small lustrous leaves, this New Zealand native is a first-rate evergreen ground cover. Small, neatly cream-margined gray-green leaves display attractive, translucent white berries preceded by inconspicuous flowers. Its low-lying branches provide a deft transition between upright shrubs such as Rosmarinus ‘Herb Cottage’ or Cistus ‘Bennett’s White’.

‘Variegata’ willingly accepts a wide range of soils, can handle wind and salt spray, and promises a dense handsome form if pruned regularly.

Size: 12"–2' 0" high x 4' 0"–6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.
