Pittosporum plants from New Zealand

Here is a small selection of the Pittosporum tree and shrub images on file. Please contact me if you cannot find below the exact Pittosporum picture for your project. The following Pittosporum plants are all New Zealand natives or native cultivar varieties.

New Zealand Pittosporum plants are often tough and adaptable, tolerating a wide range of situations and soils. Fast growing Pittosporum trees are often planted as shelter or hedging, especially Pittosporum tenuifolium varieties which come in many different foliage forms and colours. Another widely planted garden tree is Pittosporum eugenioides (lemonwood tree) which makes a fine specimen plant or shelter hedge. Possibly the toughest is Pittosporum crassifolium (karo).

Foliage fans will always find a Pittosporum to please whether you like the two-tone leaves of variegated Pittosporums, fast growing tree Pittosporums or more compact dwarf Pittosporum varieties. The flowers often smell great too!
