Pittosporum tenuifolium. It will grow into a small tree in its native New Zealand, but tends to be a large shrub here.

Re: Re: Fragrant shrub against west facing wall - That's it!

Message from Tim Williams

In forum: Identify a plant

Wonderful - I had a funny idea that it might be a pittosporum but did not know where to start. I have tentatively identified it as Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Variegatum'. On this website at: https://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/pittosporum-tenuifolium-variegatum
Thank you to everyone who answered.

Hi It's Pittosporum tenuifolium. Most people grow it as a large shrub, but given enough time it forms a really great evergreen tree!

Sorry to hear it got damaged. Might be worth reshaping the whole plant and letting it regrow as a whole. Prune after the worst of the frosts have passed, but not too late into the spring or you'll miss that first bit of regrowth!

Hope that helps.

Thank you for your suggestions Anna, Maggie and Andrew
I think the suggestion of the pittosporum tenuifolium is probably correct - mystery solved!

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

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,

Shrubs/trees for a terrace

Message from Kathy C

In forum: Container gardening

Hi, Kevin,
I certainly agree - decent sized Acer palamatum can be expensive. Another concern about putting one on your terrace is scorch - emerging leaves in can be easily damaged by wind, sun, or frost. It won't hurt the plant much at all, but will look unsightly. Only way to avoid that is to move to the most sheltered spot you can find for winter/spring. Using Prunus cerasifera 'Nigra' could be done but it will get quite large - too large for a container unless you are ready to do a lot of restrictive crown & root pruning. Other suggestions for purple leaves, flowers, etc are:
- Cotinus coggyria 'Royal Purple' - one of my favourites - gorgeous purple colour, great, fun flowers
- Prunus x cistena - Purple-leaved sand cherry is compact and gives all that a large cherry gives.
- Loropetalum chinense f. rubrum - purple foliage and pink, witch-hazel-like flowers - it is tender in frost so it would need protection but it is evergreen!
- Enkianthus cernuus var. rubens - leaves turn purple-red in autumn
- Hebe - quite a few to choose from with purple leaves or purple-variegated leaves; 'Neils' Choice', 'Lady Ann' 'Amy' & 'Black Beauty' to name a few
- Rhododendron 'Everred'
- Leucothose 'Scarletta' - evergreen
- Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb' - dwarf so perfect for a container, evergreen, but not much in the way of flowering and is a bit tender.
- Weigela florida 'Foliis Purpureis'
So, there are just a few ideas. I think all of these suggestions are on this site. I vote for the Cotinus or Prunus x cistena! :)
Please let me know what you choose!
Kathy C.

Pittosporum tenuifolium

Question from Lelsey McAllister

In forum: Pittosporum tenuifolium

This plant was well established and planted in Nov 2009. It has just developed white spots on the wood and appears to be dying from the top down

Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb' is a particular favorite plant

Comment from Matt Nichol

In forum: Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb'

This plant is a particular favorite plant of mine. This plant looks fantastic planted with Helleborus x orientalis of one type or another, a semi double pink looks great! Reasonably compact growth, with really interesting foliage when new green growth comes through the black older leaves. Plant as a specimen or as a low hedge maybe.

Pittosporum info

Message from Kathy C

In forum: Pittosporum tenuifolium

Hi, Bob! Pittosporum tenuifolium blooms in late spring to early summer - so if it isn't flowering now, it soon will be. Straight species will have small, dark purple-maroon flowers, cultivars may be different. Does that help or do you need more info?
