Thank you Tania. That looks exactly right! A pittosporum tenuifolium it is. It is obviously happy where it is as it has reached a height of 5 metres. Is it O.K. to top it out as we don't want it to get any taller? Many thanks

Could it be a pittosporum? Tania

The first is a black elder - Sambucus nigra. Lovely pink elderflowers followed by berries that are edible (but not really nice to eat without lots of sugar to make them into cordial or jelly).
The second looks like Campanula muralis - look for blue flowers in a little while.
The third could be almost anything but at a guess is some kind of Pittosporum.

Re: Does Pittosporum affect the health of other shrubs in close proximity

Hi, Jacqueline,
The only Pittosporum know to harm other plants in close proximity is Pittosporum undulatum. P. tenuifolium should not be a problem. What is happening with your shrubs?

Is it a pittosporum of some variegated sort?

Thanks! Yes I had another vote for Pittosporum Silver Queen too. Sounds like a popular variety.

Hi.
Most pittosporums are fine with full sun.In fact variegated ones are best in sunlight.
Plain tenuifolium or ten' "silver queen" are probably the most widely sold.
You need to consider the ultimate height of your hedge and how regularly they will be pruned. Pitto's prune ok in spring & summer...they can look a bit battered if they have heavy pruning.
Another thing regarding this species as a hedge, they dont much like cold drying winds during winter so think about how exposed they will be in the winter months.

Euonymous maybe? Does it flower at all? Is it evergreen? Or a Pittosporum?

Try this for size.. Tamarix tetrandra (AGM). I have two in my garden where it's higher and windier and they do well in coastal planting schemes, do give them some protection during those cold easterly spells and should do well for you. They give a beautiful dusky pink colour and lyrical form.. Hope that's useful. You could try researching online plants for coastal planting. Best wishes, Judi.. :-)

Thanks Judy, they are planted behind a wall for shelter and did fine until the cold east wind in February. I will leave them there for a bit but buy replacements. Is there another that is more tolerant of sea breezes?

That's strange, never come across this before. Where have you sited the plant? Have you ever fed it? Changed or added compost / manure? Perhaps it's suffering from drought (if pot grown). Being an evergreen if all leaf has gone, it may well be on the way out.. if possible look at the roots to see if they're diseased or dying. Let us know what you find. Best wishes, Judi..

Pittosporum leaves have gone

Question from s grant

In forum: Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Sheen'

The leaves from 2 of these shrubs have all gone. Does this mean they are dead?

HI, Darren,
That looks very much like Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Sheen' - one of the small-leaved pittosporum cultivars. I've seen some shaped/trimmed very much like yours.
All the best,
Kathy C
