The Variegated Pittosporum (Pittosporum tobira 'Variegata') is a highly sought-after evergreen shrub prized for its eye-catching foliage, which adds visual interest and texture to the landscape. This low-maintenance plant is highly adaptable, making it an excellent choice for gardeners looking to create a striking focal point or backdrop in their outdoor spaces.
The Variegated Pittosporum is a compact, rounded evergreen shrub that typically grows to a height of 6 to 10 feet, with a similar spread. This plant is known for its adaptability to various growing conditions, including a range of soil types, light levels, and moisture levels. The Variegated Pittosporum is also drought-tolerant once established, making it an excellent choice for water-wise landscapes. Its resistance to pests and diseases contributes to its low-maintenance nature, allowing gardeners to enjoy its beauty with minimal effort.
The most striking feature of the Variegated Pittosporum is its attractive foliage, which adds year-round interest to the garden. The plant boasts glossy, dark green leaves, which are edged with a creamy-white margin, creating a stunning contrast. This variegation not only adds texture and depth to the landscape but also makes the Variegated Pittosporum an excellent companion plant, as its foliage can enhance the colors of neighboring plants. The evergreen nature of this shrub ensures that your garden remains vibrant and appealing throughout the year, even in the colder months when other plants may lose their leaves.
In addition to its stunning foliage, the Variegated Pittosporum also produces clusters of small, fragrant flowers that emerge in late spring and early summer. The flowers are typically white or cream-colored, and they emit a sweet, citrus-like scent that can fill the surrounding area. While the flowers are not particularly showy, their fragrance adds another layer of sensory appeal to the plant. The flowers can also attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, which can benefit the overall health and biodiversity of your garden.
