Coprosma 'Lemon and Lime' is a variety of Looking Glass Plant named as such for its highly glossed leaves. It's small, ovate leaves are brightly coloured with lemon yellow on the interior changing to lime-green on the outer margins which becomes tinged with orange in autumn.
This rounded, compact and low growing shrub brings a zingy fresh look to low shrub borders or containers throughout spring and summer and a warmer aesthetic in the cooler months. It is remarkably easy to grow and needs little maintenance. It reaches a maximum height and spread of 1m x 0.8m.
Position Coprosma 'Lemon and Lime' in a sunny or semi-shaded position in a sheltered location. It will grow well in most fertile, well-drained soils but likes a neutral to acidic soil best. Although classed as an evergreen shrub, it is only semi-hardy therefore it may need some protection in winter from harsh, cold weather. Some leaf drop may occur in this time but it should bounce back again in spring. Take care not to overwater in winter.
Pruning isn't necessary for this slow-growing shrub but a light trim can be done in spring to tidy the shrub if required. A good leaf mould mulch applied to the base in spring will also benefit the plant.
