This is a lush plant and can deliver a solid low growth along walkways and as a backdrop to smaller blooms in your garden. The evergreen’s leaves are small and grow in a dense pattern. A little clipping will help keep it full and green. They can be massed together as a handsome focal point in the lawn or cover an embankment that’s difficult to mow. Ideal for pools and patios in pots, it should not be planted next to a foundation because it needs good drainage. Wheeler’s Dwarf Pittosporum looks wonderful in raised planters and containers and will provide a lovely background for annual beds.
Our horticulturist friends tell us, in order to keep it dense and green, it needs to be fertilized 2 or 3 times a year. You’ll enjoy the pleasant scent this dainty little shrub contributes to your flower garden, and pots of them on the porch will make an evening breeze that much more aromatic.
