GROWING ON - READY 2020. A new variety of coprosma, or mirror plant, developed from the well known Evening Glow, the aptly named Inferno will provide a blaze of colour throughout the year courtesy of its variegated evergreen foliage which calls upon a colour palette of lime, yellow, orange and crimson in varying shades and patterns. Winter sees a greater intensity of orange and red hues. Let it glow in a sheltered corner of the garden. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 3 feet. 2 litre pot.
The popular name mirror plant is applied to coprosmas because of their particularly glossy leaves. Or so we suppose. Seems pretty apt, in any case.
The genus coprosma is indigenous to such far flung and glamorous places as Indonesia, Australasia and the Pacific islands. Hardy to around -5C, so give it a spot sheltered from harsh winter winds and provide protection if things get desperately cold for a prolonged spell.
Trouble free in terms of maintenance: occasional light pruning to maintain desired shape and size is all that is required of you.
Coprosma Inferno is a fairly hardy evergreen shrub with variegated lime, yellow, orange and red foliage suitable for a sheltered position in sun or semi-shade.
