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.  The information provided on this webpage is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library and that information that we have found about it on reliable online sources.
