Buy Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Elizabeth' kohuhu: A wonderful evergreen for informal hedging

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection in cold areas)

    Each of the gently ruffled grey-green leaves has an irregular cream margin, which flushes pink - particularly in colder weather. A handsome specimen for a sheltered garden, it's also useful for creating an informal screen. It's primarily grown for its year-round foliage, which is sought after by florists, however the small (insignificant really), deep purple flowers have a deliciously sweet honey-like perfume that will fill the surrounding air.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. To thin or reduce growth prune mid-spring and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.

It is growing well with minimum care.


I chose it for the pinkish tinge at the edges of the leaves.




Highly recommend


Grew fast and healthy with inconspicuous but really fragrant flowers. Used as a screen/hedge but looks attractive as a standalone tall specimen. Low maintenance- good value for money.
