Product Overview

Coprosma repens 'Tequila Sunrise'
Emerging green foliage with gold margins become intensely orange and red flushed as the season progresses; an extraordinary variety perfect for shaping into topiarys or hedges; visually stunning

Tequila Sunrise Coprosma is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and can be pruned at anytime. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Tequila Sunrise Coprosma is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Mass Planting
  • Hedges/Screening
  • General Garden Use
  • Container Planting

Features

Tequila Sunrise Coprosma has attractive gold-variegated orange foliage with hints of red which emerges light green in spring. The small glossy oval leaves are highly ornamental and remain orange throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant. The smooth khaki (brownish-green) bark is extremely showy and adds significant winter interest.

Planting & Growing

Tequila Sunrise Coprosma will grow to be about 4 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.

Tequila Sunrise Coprosma makes a fine choice for the outdoor landscape, but it is also well-suited for use in outdoor pots and containers. With its upright habit of growth, it is best suited for use as a 'thriller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. It is even sizeable enough that it can be grown alone in a suitable container. Note that when grown in a container, it may not perform exactly as indicated on the tag - this is to be expected. Also note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
