Pittosporum tenuifolium Elizabeth

Elizabeth evergreens

Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Elizabeth' is a compact, bushy evergreen shrub with wavy-edged, green leaves that are beautifully margined with cream and pink and small, fragrant, dark red-purple flowers in late spring and early summer. This attractive shrub is easy to grow, preferring moist, but well-drained soil and may need protection from cold drying winds. It is best planted in full sun for the best leaf effect, within a flower border, bed or wall-side border and is ideal for the city, courtyard, coastal, cottage and informal style garden. It may also be planted in a container and grown on the patio.
