Pittosporum Tenuifolium Garnettii has slender grey-green leaves that can reach 5cm long. They are irregularly variegated with an attractive cream edging that may tinge pink in a cold winter. Appealing, dark purple flowers wafting a gentle, pleasant perfume appear from early to mid-summer. The plant offers interest throughout the year, whether planted as a specimen shrub or as a hedge. Best trimmed in mid-spring to maintain its bushy, dense and erect shape. While it is drought resistant, it should be kept moist if the foliage is to give of its best. It has moderate tolerance of both wind and sea spray – so good for coastal gardens.
