Bred from the wonderful New Zealand native Coprosma repens, Cocktail Coprosmas are selected for their striking spectrum of year round foliage colour. These versatile garden favourites are compact, easy to grow and enliven patios and garden beds with their luminous foliage. Coprosma ‘Margarita’ has lively citron foliage that deepens to warm amber tones in the cooler months.
As with all Cocktail Coprosmas the foliage colour intensifies in colder weather; perfect to brighten up the garden in those dark winter months. An excellent choice for patio pots, en masse in garden beds or anywhere you want a splash of year round colour. Their dense, sturdy growth habit also make them ideal as a small hedge.
Cocktail Coprosmas thrive in sunny or partly shaded spots and handle dry and coastal conditions well. Just make sure to protect from severe frosts and give a light trim to retain their great compact shape once a year. Evergreen.
Note: Please dont panic if a plant looks different to the image on the Website. It is likely to be in perfect condition for the time of year and just resting before it bursts into action in the coming season.
