Corokia Cotoneaster 'Silver Leaf' XL - Plant

Corokia cotoneaster 'Silver Leaf' XL
Corokia Cotoneaster 'Silver Leaf' XL

The Corokia is also known as the zigzag plant.

Corokia is a great house plant, a patio or decking plant and can even be used as a bonsai plant. This young Corokia cotoneaster looks fragile as well as whimsical with its grey-green, leathery foliage to which it owes its ornamental popularity and that it radiates a modern botanical minimalist ‘look’. The gentle aroma it gives off is also a great asset – sort of a musky smell.
The branches become covered in silvery little ‘hairs’. The undersides of the leaves are also silvery and quite hairy. Late spring and summer will see this shrub covered in small star shaped, yellow blooms that afterwards produce red berries. Maori® plants are all really exceptionally decorative plants that fit the currently trendy minimalist look.

  • Planting
  • The Corokia is such a versatile plant. Makes a great house plant but is also terrific on the patio or decking. Corokia likes a light spot, but can also be kept in darker spots. It will thrive in a sunny spot on the patio or decking, but if it has to go in a shady spot, that won’t be a problem. It is naturally able to withstand a lot of wind too. Do ensure that wherever you stand it, all drainage water can disperse, especially when potted – it must not stand in water for any length of time.

  • Care
  • Corokia is a very undemanding shrub. Water weekly indoors, or at least keep the potting compost moist. Do now allow the plant to stand in any drain-off as this will just drown it. If the plant is growing outdoors, just water enough that it doesn’t dry out. This bush should really not stand in water. This shrub can be kept fairly dry over the winter. As it is a slow growing plant, it shouldn’t really be necessary to prune it but if you need to keep its shape, do feel free to cut back long shoots. The shrub will also then grow a bit tighter.
    Corokia in the winter
    Corokia is used to hard coastal winds and is fairly hardy – will easily manage -18° C and will even endure -10° C for a short burst. Corokia will however prefer it cool over the winter and the perfect temperature would be 5-10° C. A warmer spot up to 15° C will not cause a problem. If your Corokia is on the patio or decking, give it some protection from frost, or stand it indoors. If your Corokia is kept in a cool spot for the winter, you may see small yellow flowers appear in spring.

    The minimalist simplicity of a pure design gives added value to the interior. The idea being that ‘Less is more’. The perfect expression.
    Personal and industrial minimalism is all about the space itself. The shape of the Corokia fits this style perfectly. Its modest greenery is warm and colourful and looks very natural in a minimalist space.
    In a warm homely style with lots of earthy shades and prints, attention is often focused on all things ‘nature. Right back to the basics, purely natural. Basic, and yet classic.
    Corokia is the type of plant that matches many different styles and will fit in classic forms as well as modern. Just so versatile.
