Corokia buddleioides is an evergreen shrub species from the Argophyllaceae family. It originates from the North Island of New Zealand. In its natural climate, in optimal, sheltered conditions, it can reach 6m in height. This plant is usually grown under protection outside of New Zealand and typically grows to a much smaller size. It produces leathery, slim, shiny green leaves with silvery-white, felty undersides, measuring between 5-15cm in length. Flowers are star-like, 5 petalled and coloured yellow, these appear from late spring to early summer and lead onto orange-red fruits. Corokia buddleioides likes dry soil and full sun, it is less hardy compared to other Corokia species and should be grown with this in mind.
