Coprosma Pacific series

Everyone knows coprosmas are tough, but no-one has ever described them as gorgeous – until now. Pacific™ Coprosmas are breath-taking. They are colourful, year round show-stoppers. Lush, vigorous and stunning, they can be planted at any time. Best of all, these are super-low-maintenance plants.

FLOWERS & FOLIAGE FLOWERS & FOLIAGE

One look and it’s easy to spot that this plant is all about the glossy waved-shaped foliage. Pacific Sunrise is chocolate brown with hot pink highlights and Pacific Sunset has a vivid red centre set against a burgundy to chocolate brown margin.

PLANTING TIPS PLANTING TIPS

Pacific Coprosmas can be planted pretty much anywhere though they do like a well drained soil: from full sun through to part shade; in the ground or in containers; and in positions with high wind or salt spray.

WAYS TO USE THEM WAYS TO USE THEM

These are useful set and forget plants: to hedge along a front path; to mass plant on a dry sunny slope; to clip into balls and set in pots across a deck or patio; to landscape poolside where salt spay isn’t an issue.

SHAPE & SIZE SHAPE & SIZE

Pacific Coprosmas grow to 1 metre high and wide, forming a mound of upright dense foliage. Prune to shape or simply to encourage greater density – these coprosmas make ideal low hedges.

FOOD & WATER FOOD & WATER

Once established, coprosmas are tough and need little water – low to moderate. Just before spring, toss a handful of slow release fertiliser around each plant to boost fresh foliage.

PESTS & DISEASE PESTS & DISEASE

Coprosmas are tough and they have no issue with pests or disease.
