It’s a hedge that grows on our property. We bought the property two years ago and I am still in the process of identifying and cataloging all the plants. Thanks in advance!

    Thank you. We have about 10 of these in the garden. I see I need to reposition/replant a couple to give them more room.

    Its definitely a coprosma repens. The plant will tend to flower more readily when its under stress. These look very healthy so maybe in time it will fruit (small yellow berries)

    Hi titiad, It is strange that you have not seen flowers or fruits, whether this is mirror bush or not.I have never grow this genus, sorry, I’m unable to offer any help on it lack of flower & fruit. I did read about a species, the Coprosma robusta does not produce fruit until about 3 years after planting. Perhaps you can check with your local agricultural department for this mystery. Best wishes!

    Hi Laura, It looks very similar, even the same. Theonly thing is that I have ssen no flowers nor fruit in 2 years and we have several of them

    Without its flowers, I’m guessing it might be cultivar of mirror bush (Coprosma repens).
