Pittosporum tenuifolium Cratus - 10Ltr
Pittosporum tenuifolium Cratus is a bushy evergreen which will form an upright shrub to around 6m tall and 1.5-2m wide in most sites.
Pittosporum leaves are 3-4cm long and rounded to elliptic with wavy-margins, they are light green with a silver wash when emerging and darken as they age. The new lighter leaves contrast well against the older darker leaves and the almost black stems. Late spring/ early summer sees small, fragrant, bell-shaped, deep purple flowers appear followed by black capsules.
A good evergreen shrub which has a solid natural shape but can be clipped if required.
We would recommend fertile and moist but well draining soil in a sheltered site in sun to part shade kept away from cold winter winds.
