    Plant Care

    Coprosma repens ‘Taupata Gold’ is easy to care for and requires minimal maintenance. It prefers well-draining soil and can handle a range of soil textures and pH. This shrub prefers full sun in coastal climates and light shade in hotter inland gardens.

    After planting your Gold Splash Mirror Plant, water deeply and regularly for several weeks to reduce plant stress and facilitate root development. After roots have become established, reduce frequency and water as needed.
