Pittosporum tenuifolium Silver Queen

Pittosporum Silver Queen

A lovely shrub for seaside and other mild areas, Pittosporum tenuifolium Silver Queen is a large, evergreen shrub with a bushy habit. The rounded, grey-green leaves on fine black stems have beautiful, narrow, irregular white margins, giving a light, mobile appearance to the shrub. In spring and summer, clusters of small, deep purple, bell-shaped flowers appear, unobtrusive, but with a wonderful scent in the evening. Originally from New Zealand, Pittosporum Silver Queen is also known as tawhiwhi. The foliage is loved by flower-arrangers, and frequent cutting will keep the shrub in bounds.
