An attractive evergreen shrub with inconspicuous flowers but striking variegated foliage. Its habit is compact and broad upright; Coprosma responds well to pruning. The common name “Mirror plant” refers to the thick shining leaves.
It is frost tender in the greater part of Western Europe and must be treated as a border- or tub plant, but In southern parts of Britain and comparable areas it will survive outside.
It is hardly susceptible to diseases, thriving in any soil-type and preferring a sunny or semi-shaded place. The obovate leaves are a lively yellow with irregular fresh-green margins.
Contrary to other Coprosma varieties the leaves do not change of colour in winter but keep their lively and fresh appearance throughout the season.
‘Lemon and Lime’ is one of the most-striking foliage plants on the market!
Available in Europe.
