Coprosma 'Painter's Palette'

Coprosma 'Painter's Palette' (Coprosma repens (Mirror Plant))

I'm collecting Coprosmas again after losing most of them last winter - here's one of the new ones!

Very pretty glossy leaves.

Here's hoping for a slightly milder winter next year then.

That's a lovely one Spritz.
I've seen them often at the gerden centre near to both of us, never bought one though, i don't really have the space.
Do you keep them in one area or do you dot them about the garden ?

I used to have them in a west-facing bed, and they were thriving until last winter - I lost all but one. I'd even written a blog about my beautiful Coprosmas! This year, I decided that I would replace them, but not plant them out. I have one pot sunk in the back garden and the others are in terracotta pots around the garden. I shall move them all into the greenhouse for the winter.

I'm still looking for 'Karo Red', though. Maybe a trip to S.W. is called for??

This is a lovely one Spritz. I looked at one of mine today and it seems to have some kind of flower on it. It's a bit strange but hey ho as they say. I took a pic. Do you think it would be worth while publishing it to find out if anyone else has seen something similar?

Why not? I saw some on 'Pacific Nights' the other day - I should have taken a photo but I was a bit busy at the time!

No, nor had I - I came across it unexpectedly...I just HAD to have it.
