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 information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Coprosma kirkii 'Variegata'.
