Coprosma kirkii 'Variegata' - A low growing woody groundcover that grows to 1 foot and spreads to 4 to 6 feet wide with narrow bluntly-rounded small gray-green leaves that have creamy margins. Plant in coastal full sun or light shade and irrigate regularly to occasionally. Can survive temperatures down to about 10 degrees F. This is a great small scale groundcover that flows outward with branches near the extremities flat to the ground. Good for covering banks, spilling over walls or as a filler in large containers. A very useful plant in near coastal situations.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Coprosma kirkii 'Variegata' .
