Coprosma 'Lemon and Lime'

Coprosma 'Lemon and Lime'

From £13.99


Offering a citrus burst of colour to borders or pots, Coprosma ‘Lemon and Lime’ with its zingy palette and ultra-shiny leaves is a little gem of a shrub and a cheerful addition to any garden. The evergreen foliage takes on warmer tones in autumn which brings added seasonal interest through the winter months. Being compact, slow growing and easy to care for, it’s suited to all gardeners and skill levels.

Coprosma 'Lemon and Lime' is another lovely variety of Looking Glass Plant or Mirror Bush as it is sometimes known, so named because the leaves are incredibly shiny and reflective. This evergreen compact, rounded shrub bears small ovate leaves that are largely bright lemon-yellow with flushes of lime-green towards the outer edges. In autumn the green becomes orange-tinged for additional seasonal interest.

This small, low-growing but upright shrub brings a fresh, citrusy look to the border in spring and summer and a warmer colour palette in autumn and winter. It is easy to grow, being slow growing and requires little maintenance other than a tidy up in early spring if required.

Coprosma ‘Lemon and Lime’ prefers a more sheltered location and positioned in a sunny or partially shaded spot.  It is tolerant of most fertile, well-drained soils but grows best in neutral to acidic soil.  In colder weather or more exposed locations, it can experience some leaf fall as it is classed as semi-hardy, however it bounces back again in the spring. 

Ideal for shrub borders or container growing, Coprosma ‘Lemon and Lime’ will eventually reach a height and spread of 1m x 0.8m. May need frost protection in winter.
