COROKIA COTONEASTER

 
Yet another divaricating shrub, this one is a lot denser than coprosma virescens or muehlenbeckia astonii - hence its other name the "Wire netting bush". It has small yellow flowers that later turn into red or yellow fruit. Corokia cotoneaster can be clipped into a very smart medium to low hedge, and is best grown in full sun to semi-shade in well drained soil. Mulch it well, but avoid the trunk. Like so many of our New Zealand natives it is doesn't suffer from any major pests or problems. For more information on New Zealand's unique divaricating plants, see our blog post on the subject.
