There are many Pittopsporum to choose from but Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Cratus’ is one of our favourites at Big Plant Nursery.
Forming a beautiful, dense evergreen shrub this Pittosporum has wonderfully glossy, elliptic leaves which emerge as silvery-green. The leaves have wavy edges and out against the stems which are almost black.
During late spring – early summer, tiny and beautifully fragrant deep brown-black bell-shaped flowers emerge in abundance. These may be followed by black seed capsules.
Grown more as a foliage plant, Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Cratus’ clips beautifully. We recommend planting in free draining soil in a sunny sheltered position for best results.
