Wrinkled Blue Pittosporum

Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Wrinkled Blue'

SKU
09102
Vigorous but tidy with small silvery-blue, wavy-edged leaves on thin black stems. Well-suited to shearing to create a formal hedge. In its natural form, the airy habit allows sunlight to accentuate the blue sheen and the leaves to shimmer in the breeze. Evergreen.
