Pittosporum Tenuifolium Elizabeth more information

Pittosporum Tenuifolium ‘Elizabeth’ has attractive, glossy, green leaves edged in pink and cream. The pink deepens when the weather is cold. Best trimmed in mid-spring to maintain its bushy, rounded and cushion-like shape. While it is drought resistant once established, it should be kept moist if the foliage is to give of its best.
