Pittosporum are a favourite for many Australian gardens. Evergreen and very hardy they are ideal as screening trees or low hedges depending on the variety. Online Plants has an extensive range of hedging varieties such as Pittosporum screen master, silver sheen, sunburst, limelight, James stirling, ivory sheen, green pillar, silver song, gold star and garnetti, all of which attain varous heights between 6-12 metres, as well as lower growing forms such as golf ball and miss muffett. The new release golf ball Pttosporum is excellent as a low border plant as it only grows to 30cm tall and requires little if any trimming.
Very hardy in full sun or part shade, suitabe to well drained soil. Pittosporums respond well to pruning twice per year, and bi-annual fertilising with a slow release general purpose plant food. Keep barey moist until established during summer months, but avoid overwatering.
