Once a month we will highlight a plant that is both suitable and stylish for the traditional Auckland garden. This month our plant is :
Corokia Geenty's Green :
If formal border plants are a requirement in your outdoor garden area, then consider this versatile New Zealand native. A perfect alternative to the traditional european hedges, the Corokia forms a dense compact shrub that suits full sun to part shade. Hardy, and requiring little maintenance, this olive green gem can certainly add a textured finish to a designer garden. The Corokia looks great as a potted specimen, hedge or as a topiary standard.
