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 on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Coprosma kirkii 'Variegata'.
