Coprosma Dunstan Blue

In Stock

Coprosma Dunstan Blue is an attractive evergreen shrub known for its unique blue-green foliage that intensifies in colour during the colder months. It is a spreading shrub with tangled brown branches and produces blue fruit attractive to birds.

This hardy plant is low-maintenance, making it a great choice for gardeners looking to add year-round interest with minimal effort. Thriving in full sun, it prefers well-drained soil with moderate moisture and can adapt to a variety of soil types, as long as they are not waterlogged. Perfect for hedging in mixed borders, rock gardens, or as a focal point in smaller gardens. Coprosma Dunstan Blue adds a striking visual element to any garden. It suits contemporary, coastal, and formal garden styles, and its salt tolerance makes it ideal for coastal gardens.

At maturity, it reaches a height of 1m and spread of approximately 1-1.5m.

Trimming: Prune lightly in late winter or early spring to maintain shape and encourage bushy growth. Remove any dead or damaged branches as needed.

Fertilising: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early spring to support vibrant growth. Avoid over-fertilising, as this can lead to excessive growth and reduce foliage colour intensity.

Watering: Water regularly during the establishment phase and in dry periods. Ensure the soil is well-drained to prevent waterlogging. Once established, Coprosma is relatively drought-tolerant but will benefit from occasional deep watering during extended dry spells.

Pest Control: Generally pest-free, but monitor for scale insects and aphids. Treat infestations with insecticidal soap or horticultural oil if necessary.

Disease Management: Rarely affected by diseases, but ensure good air circulation to prevent potential fungal issues. Remove and dispose of any diseased plant material promptly to maintain overall plant health.
