Corokia Yellow Wonder


  • 799

Corokia Yellow Wonder is a medium sized native shrub with interesting colour and form.  It is very tough and hardy, making it particularly suitable for conditions ranging from coast to alpine.  The family of Corokia have the same distinctive look with all varieties having variations on silvery colouring, and a wirey look.  Yellow Wonder has silvery green leaves contrasting with dark stems.

Corokia Yellow Wonder becomes covered in small bright yellow star shaped flowers in summer.  These put on a spectacular display of colour and add interest, brightening up the shrubbery beautifully.  The flowers are plentiful and help the environment by feeding bees. 

Following flowering, Corokia Yellow Wonder produces masses of yellow-orange berries, again adding colour and interest to the bush.  Native birds love feeding on these berries, which will contribute to attracting and retaining native birds in your garden.   

Corokia is a versatile shrub.  It will perform well in most locations, ranging from coastal to inland.  It prefers full sun, but will also do okay in shady positions.  Corokia are particularly tolerant to windy positions and dry conditions.  Salt wind will not bother them, making them a very good choice for coastal plantings, and they will withstand cold frosts and alpine conditions.

Left alone Corokias will stay reasonably compact and maintain good form.  Clipping from time to time will greatly enhance their appearance.  They also respond well to strong clipping making them an ideal shrub for shaping or hedging.  They form an interesting and beautifully dense hedge, from very low to medium height.  (50cm - 2m).
