Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb'


Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb' (Pittosporum tenuifolium (New Zealand Pittosporum))

Planted in the tiny bed by the neighbours' fence, to give some winter interest there.

Do you think it'll be OK with the wind whistling through?

love the depth of colour

Thanks - it's the dwarf version of a Pittosporum that I already have, so I'm hoping that it will be OK.

That is a gorgeous colour so pretty too.

Thanks, G.

Yes, 6d, Pip, it's a really good colour and evergreen too, so it's lovely all year round. :-)

We have lots of Pittosporum here but they are all green. (and considerably bigger!)

I have a large all-green one, Pip, which was here whan we came, plus a large-ish chocolate-leaved one. I planted a pretty little variegated one last year, but it din't like the cold winds in the early spring, so it gave up. :-((

Is this Pittosporum still going Barbara?

12 Mar, 2013

 

Yes, it's still there. :-)

Pleased to hear it, just checking on how tender these shrubs are....

I find the variegated ones don't like the east winds or the cold. I lost two a few years ago, Dd. This one seems fine.
