A Bit More

Sometimes you just need a durable evergreen shrub that will behave itself. Pittosporum tobira ‘Wheeler’s Dwarf’ is just such a creature. Achieving a maximum height of 3 feet with a 5 foot spread, this small Asian native naturally grows in a small mound. In a formal landscape, it is a low-maintenance option that needs only full sun or partial shade and medium water. The deep green elliptical leaves densely cover the branches and while flowers are possible, they are few and far between. Pruning is rarely necessary but should be accomplished before the spring growth spurt. Applications are many but perhaps the most popular are as a foreground plant or even a ground cover and it is a particularly good choice poolside. It is unhindered by seacoast conditions and thrives in Sunset Western Garden Zones 8-24 with possible success in zones 4-7. Boething Treeland Farms grows this time-tested beauty in 1, 5 and 15 gallons.
