Description
Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb' forms a rounded branching shrub that remains naturally neat and compact. The black stems are covered in small burgundy-black leaves with rippling margins. New growth emerges light green, making an interesting contrasting with the darker, mature foliage. This compact, slow-growing evergreen enjoys a sheltered, sunny position, positively thriving in mild coastal locations. Perfect for adding colour and texture to the front of borders. Height: 1m (39"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
