How to Grow Looking Glass Plant
Looking Glass Plant, otherwise known as Coprosma, is a tough and resilient plant originating from New Zealand. It has a glossy sheen to its foliage, adding to its popularity and toughness. An old-fashioned favourite, it has undergone many transformations and many hybrids and new cultivars are now available to the home gardener. They are suitable for many gardens, anywhere where permanent colour is desired without the need for flowers. Ideal for small scale topiary, they are remarkably tough and versatile in the garden and can be used for hedges, borders and rockeries. Well suited to dry coastal areas, to inland areas where light frosts prevail.
