Product Description

With green-grey leaves edged in cream, this eye-catching shrub stands out beautifully among other plants, where its unusual colouring lightens up even the gloomiest of borders.

The fabulous creamy variegated leaves are brightest when new growth emerges in spring and summer, remaining bright and neat all year round - even in winter giving you a real year-round garden feature.

New leaves unfurl ivory-white before taking on their characteristic grey and cream shading, and its not unusual for the creamy margins of the leave to develop a soft pinkish tinge that gives the bush a striking blushed appearance.

This Pittosporum is quite unusual, and works really well as a low maintenance feature in your garden. Easy to grow, it also makes a fabulous addition to cut flower displays, where a fresh branch provides a contemporary twist to a vase.

Supplied as a standard plant in a 9cm pot, ready for immediate planting.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Plant in a sheltered location out of the way of chill winter winds.
  • Water plants regularly to help establish a good root system.

Care Guide

  • Keep your Pittosporum well-watered so that it establishes a deep and extensive root system. Pittosporums dislike dry soil. Applying a mulch in spring and autumn will help to preserve moisture and keeps roots cool.
  • Feed the plant a well-balanced, general-purpose fertilizer in spring, just before it starts into new growth.
  • Prune the pittosporum lightly in winter to help maintain size and shape. Use sharp, secateurs to remove and dead, diseased or broken branches.
