Buy Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Variegatum' kohuhu: Large, pretty evergreen with wavy, variegated leaves.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    Prized for its striking, dark grey or black young stems clothed with distinctive, wavy, small grey-green leaves edged with cream, this large, bushy, evergreen shrub or small tree forms a natural oval. It makes a lovely backdrop to a sunny, well-drained border and responds well to light clipping into a more formal shape. An excellent plant for warm coastal areas, where it can successfully be grown as an attractive, variegated windbreak or hedge.

  • 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.

Hi, hope you are all well there at crocus Can I grow a pittosprium in a large pot to keep it to a reasonable size in a small garden Thanks Deborah

Yes, you could grow this in a large pot and it will restrict the height, however it will need to be kept really well fed and watered, and you will probably find that after a few years it will start to struggle.
