Coprosma  Roy’s Red

<i>Coprosma</i> ‘Roy’s Red’

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.

Accentuated by a marvelous surface so highly sheened it seems unreal, small, thick, almost succulent-looking foliage exhibits bronzy red and green hues. The lustrous, ovoid-shaped leaves angle upward while their tips curve down, and come winter transmute deep purply rubescent shades. Erect and not as wide-angled as ‘Beatson’s Gold’, light-colored reflective stems define a compact bushy shrub that casts cozy glimmers on Mediterraneans or fellow New Zealanders like Uncinia rubra or Carex tenuiculmis.

Size: 4' 0"–6' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
