Pittosporum tobira Details

Pittosporum tobira is grown for its lush foliage and elegant flowers. The sweetly scented, white flowers are produced amidst the glossy, dark green leaves through spring and early summer. It grows as a bushy and rounded tree with a somewhat open habit to about 10 m tall and 3 m wide, performing best when positioned in full sun on a well-drained site. It tends to be less dense when grown in shaded conditions. This variety is hardy to moderate frost, cool climates, coastal conditions, and most soil types except wet or heavy soils. Pittosporum tobira is commonly included in NZ native plantings, used as a backdrop for smaller plants, grown as a specimen, or planted to attract birds.
