Some species have the added advantage of being salt tolerant - in particular the taupata (Coprosma retusa), widely used for hedges in Wellington - see illustration below.
The Coprosma fruit is an attractive berry, which may be of various colors - often red or orange. Some of the small almost inconspicuous Coprosmas have very beautiful wine-red, translucent berries, and there is a variety with pale blue, translucent fruits - Coprosma acerosa.
