The deep green leaves flashing white flip sides when the wind blows inspire this New Zealand shrub’s common name, while the genus is coined from the Maori name Korokio. Miniature arrowhead-like evergreen leaves scantily clothe a unique tangle of wide-angled, zig-zagging dark branches. Embellished by star-shaped fragrant yellow flowers and tiny red berries, the beguiling Ghost Plant attains a sculptural aspect that can be employed as a specimen near a pathway or utilized to view bold-colored plants through. Well-suited for containers, C. cotoneaster’s slow growing easy-care habit enjoys bright shade, warm sunny niches plus well-drained soil, yet abides occasional dry spells and seaside conditions.
