Coprosma virescens (Mikimiki) Details

Coprosma virescens, commonly known as Mikimiki, is a twiggy, NZ native shrub. It features small, green leaves carried on a frame made up of tightly tangled, orange-brown branches. The foliage tends to be dense when grown in sheltered environments but sparse in exposed or cooler areas. It typically grows to 2 m tall and 1.5 m wide and can be trimmed as necessary. Best results with Mikimiki are achieved when it is grown in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. It tolerates extended dry periods, wind, frost, and heavy soils, and coastal conditions. Coprosma virescens is an ideal plant for tough locations and is often included in a mixed planting, used in revegetation exercises, or included in alpine gardens.
