Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Sheen'
Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Sheen' (Silver Sheen Kohuhu) - Fast growing to 20 ft. tall X 8-10 ft. wide. This cultivar has notably more open habit and smaller leaves than the species. Plant in full coastal sun or part shade, with occasional watering. Seaside tolerant. The small leaves start uniformly round and elongate with age. A very showy and dramatic looking plant when the silver highlights in the leaves catch morning and afternoon light. This is further enhanced if a gentle breeze causes the branches to move, making the plant shimmer. Can be maintained as a very nice looking formal hedge to 3 to 6 feet tall if tip-pruned regularly.
