Can anyone id this plant?

I bought this as part of a 6 pack of 'basket plants' from B&Q last year. No way any of them were for hanging baskets, as some were hollies and choysia and photinia! Anyway I've no idea what this one is.

    It has a look of Coprosma about it, but that is more of a guess, than a definite.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    that's my thought too, but I don't know them well

  • I've googled coprosma (I've never heard of it before), and you might well be right as the foliage goes a dark colour in winter. Thanks for your help!
