Description  Videos Q & A Description

Pittosporum tobira is an evergreen shrub from the Mediterranean, with glossy, deep green leaves and wonderfully scented creamy-white flowers. This is an excellent shrub for coastal conditions and will also grow well in a container. A light prune once a year will help to retain a dense, bushy habit. Very versatile can even be planted to make a wonderful glossy fragrant hedge (as seen a lot in the South of France!) Plant in full sun and free draining soil for best results.
