Further Information about Pittosporum Tenuifolium Elizabeth Hedging

Pittosporum is an extremely sought after evergreen plant and with good reason. This versatile shrub can be used for hedging particularly in milder sites around the country or as individual shrubs dotted around the garden.

The pretty and decorative green and cream foliage of the variety Elizabeth contrasts well with the black stems while also taking on an attractive pink edging in the winter giving a variegated appearance, the brownish chocolate coloured flowers can be insignificant as blooms but produce a gorgeous honey scent in spring. The pretty colouring of the foliage of this useful shrub makes a perfect backdrop or partner to more brightly coloured plants in a bed or border. The foliage is a particular favourite with florists for their displays.
