Coprosma 'Fireburst' is an evergreen shrub with striking green, cream and pink variegated foliage. The colour changes from cream/pink tones during the summer to fiery red foliage during the autumn and winter. 'Fireburst' is ideal for small hedges and general garden landscaping. It grows to 3 or 4 feet tall and the same in width. Prune to promote bushiness. Performs best on well drained soil and in full sun to partial shade. Hardy to 20F.
( Anemanthele lessoniana 'Pheasant’s Tail Grass' ) This native NZ grass is supposedly only hardy to -12.2 °C (10°F) but we've had great luck with it in protected areas of our garden. It put on a gorgeous show and even the dead grass looks great over the winter.
Arthropodium cirratum (Renga Renga) is a New Zealand native that can take dry shade and is hardy in zone 8 as long as it's in a fairly protected position. Just found some at Secret Garden Growers in Canby, OR.
PRATIA GLACIER WHITE: An excellent mat forming groundcover. Bears a profusion of dainty white star-shaped flowers on short stems during spring and summer. Excellent in containers or under planting. NZ native. Sun or semi shade.
