What kind of flowers does it get, obviously it does not grow that way, it does not look like osmanthus delavayi, it has small leaves and is evergreen, it looks a lot like croakia, it might be evergreen where you live. Hope someone gives you and accurate label.

Thanks for the reply

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

Hey now Kathy stop showing off. Ha ha.

I had asked a chap at work who is a keen gardener and he was struggling putting a name to it.
Cheers for that

LOL, Darren!
I have an ND in hort but am home most of the time with two small children - have to keep my skills honed ;)
Happy to help any time!
Kathy
