Corokia are evergreen shrubs with robust, leathery foliage and small, star-shaped flowers which are then followed by red, yellow or orange berries. Corokia are well-suite to planting in borders and beds. You should expect to see your Corokia grow to an approximate height and spread of up to 2.5m (8ft).
Corokia are best planted in well-drained soil of sand, chalk or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Dig a hole that is the same depth and width as the root ball. Space companion plants 40cm (16”) apart and mixing a generous amount of peat moss to the planting area, mixing thoroughly to keep the ground moist. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil into place. Corokia are best positioned in an area of full sun.
Corokia are low maintenance plants requiring little care throughout growth and maturity. Water moderately during the summer. You should allow your soil to dry up before applying more moisture. Once mature, from spring through to autumn apply an organic fertiliser every 3-4 months.
It is possible to propagate Corokia by root greenwood cuttings during early summer or semi-ripe cuttings during mid or late summer.
