Search Pittosporum
(Pi- tos -po - rum) This invaluable New Zealand native shrub is the backbone of many gardens. Pittosporums are what we here at Wairere call a "performance plant" as they will suply the desired effect in planting schemes without being too demanding or fussy. The name comes from Greek 'pitta' meaning pitch and 'sporum' meaning seed which refers to the sticky seeds that apear after the flowers.  There are 200 species of Pittosporum many of which come from New Zealand. Pittosporums can be used as excellent stand alone feature plants, hedges, screens, windbreaks, shrubberies or topiary specimens. The highly ornamental, evergreen foliage almost always looks well groomed and is extremely tolerant of regular trimming.
