A Bit More

This hedge plant knows how to play with light! The small, light-green leaves of Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Silver Sheen’ have a glossy, reflective surface that sets it apart from the species. Growing 12-16’ tall and 6-8’ wide, this selection is a valuable screen that can be hedged or left natural. If left naturalistic, the thin, black stems of ‘Silver Sheen’ grow in a more open habit, bringing more light to its shimmery foliage. Cold hardy to 15° F, plant in part to full sun and provide regular water.
