Coprosma 'Evening Glow' (Evening Glow Mirror Bush) - A very colorful evergreen upright growing shrub to 4 to 5 feet tall with striking variegated foliage. The small ovate leaves are green with irregular yellow blotches that turn bright orange-red in late summer and fall and remain this way until new growth commences in the spring. Flowers are inconspicuous. Plant in full coastal sun to light shade inland in moderately well-drained soil. Irrigate occasionally to regularly. Hardy to 20-25 F. Naturally takes a pyramidal form but tolerates pruning to shape (best in fall or spring). We grew this plant from 2006 until 2011.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made 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 if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Coprosma 'Evening Glow'.
