Coprosma 'Pina Colada' PP21,032 (Pina Colada Mirror Bush) - A very colorful evergreen upright-growing shrub to 4 feet tall and as wide with striking glossy wavy-margined leaves that are a distinct yellow-gold color with deep red-orange edges and with enhanced orange to red coloration in the cooler weather of winter. Flowers are inconspicuous. Plant in full coastal sun to light shade inland in a moderately well-drained soil. Irrigate occasionally to regularly. Hardy to 20-25 F. Most Coprosma tolerate near-seaside conditions and likely this one will too. A great specimen garden plant, alone or in a group or as a dramatic low hedge or container plant. This plant was discovered in the summer of 2006 by Stephen Burton as a branch mutation on Coprosma 'Tequila Sunrise' growing in his nursery in Cambridge, New Zealand. This plant received US Plant Patent 21,032 in June 2010 and is being marketed in the US by the Ball Horticulture Company and Kiora Flora.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any 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 'Pina Colada' PP21,032.
