This delightful evergreen shrub, which can also be used for screening, originates in New Zealand, where the Maori name for Pittosporum tenufolium is ‘kohuhu’ or ‘tawhiwhi’. It is a favourite with florists who value the leathery foliage as a good accompaniment for different varieties of cut flowers.
Tiny, deep purple flowers appear at the end of the leaf shoots in May-June, they are insignificant but pleasantly honey scented and attract native pollinators, particularly bees.
- Well drained soil
- South, west and east facing
- Full sun, partial shade
Position in a sunny, protected position, this evergreen is intolerant of frost and cold wind. Requires little pruning but if a gentle trim is needed to shape, do so in late spring and follow with a mulch.
