Q. growth of a new coprosma “Marble Queen”

I purchased this plant because my husband loved it. Planted it with some other hosta’s and read up on it after planting. found it would grow 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide. I dug a whole 3 times the size of it and put it in the ground. as it grows it will have to work its way thru clay and serpentine. with that in mind do I have to worry about it getting as big as they say, or will its growth be stunted??

It has dense growth to 3 to 5 feet tall by 4-6 feet wide.

Growth may be a bit less if exposed to coastal winds.

Q. Coprosma

Hello – I am wondering if you can help me. I was looking for a plant to put in my bay window indoors. I went to my local nursery in Bentonville, Arkansas and the Customer Service Rep informed me that Coprosma would work. I get the east sun, very sunny through my lace curtains during the morning hours. Bright light the rest of the day.

I cannot find anything on the internet to tell me how to care for this plan indoors. Can you please give me any information? The only thing I know is that I can prune it if it gets too big.

Thank you very much
