A messy brown tangle of flowerless, almost leafless stems probably isn't everyone's cup of tea but it was one of those WHAT IS THAT!?! moments for me between airports on the way out of NZ. I think the answer is Coprosma acerosa. The pale backdrop and foreground aren't so flattering. I'd like to see it against a dark wall or planting and alongside charcoal paving. It looks like excellent habitat for little birds.

Mulch! It retains moisture, suppresses weeds and helps retain soil moisture. I always use newspaper underneath and in very weedy areas I use cardboard instead.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
