Description

Coprosma propinqua
A small-leaved shrub or tree which grows 3 to 6 metres in height. Mingimingi is common in swampy forest, in scrub, along stream banks and in stoney places. The male flowers occur in clusters of one to four on very short branches. Female flowers are found on their own at the ends of short branchlets.  The berries are sweet and juicy, pale when immature, turning dark blue or blue-flecked when mature.  The shrub provides good shade and predator shelter for chooks plus forage from the berries.

11cm pot. Certified Organic Plant.
