Native to New Zealand. Where hardy, all are valued for ease of maintenance in difficult situations and for handsome, glossy foliage. Male and female flowers are borne on separate plants; female plants bear attractive small fruits when a male is nearby for pollination.Coprosma repens
Rapid growth to 10 ft. tall, 6 ft. wide; much lower and more compact when subjected to seacoast conditions. Inland, an open, straggly shrub if neglected—but beautiful, dense form if pruned twice yearly (at any height desired). Oval or oblong leaves are 3 in. long, 1 1/2 in. wide, dark to light green, almost unbelievably shiny and glossy. Yellow or orange fruits. Use as hedge, screen, informal espalier.
