Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, prune annually to shape.
HISTORY
Lore In the South Pacific and New Zealand, indigenous peoples use the wood and inner bark of coprosma as a yellow dye that requires no mordant. The leaves are used for an antibacterial wound poultice. Seeds are ground as a coffee substitute.
