Description

Coprosma robusta, Karamu, is a tough large-leaved Coprosma from New Zealand where it grows on both the North and South Islands in lowland and coastal habitats usually in open shrubland or forest margins or clearings. A dioecious species, it has tiny white flowers from which are borne a profusion of orange berries throughout the year. They are highly ornamental and provide a ready food for birds. A bush coffee can be made from the roasted seeds. Although not the largest-leaved of the New Zealand Coprosma species its foliage is handsome and creates an attractive evergreen bush particularly when grown with other New Zealand species. In New Zealand it becomes a small tree to 6m tall but in the UK is a small shrub growing to about 2m.

Our little bit of New Zealand in the UK Review by Paul
Having had two holidays in New Zealand I have wanted to plant as many plants as I can to remind ourselves of our travels. This plant was well packaged and fits in beautifully into our garden, although very pot bound. But otherwise healthy on arrival (Posted on 20/04/2020)
