Pittosporum tenuifolium ' Golden Ball'

A golden ball for low hedges or in isolation

More details

Description

The variety ‘Golden Ball’ has very brilliant golden foliage. In its period of growth, its young golden-yellow leaves contrast with the older yellow-green leaves edged with a stronger green.
Coming from the same breeding than Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Golf Ball’, ‘Golden Ball’ has the same qualities: very dense, it naturally forms a ball of less than one meter. Fast-growing and branching from the base, it can be pruned. ‘Golden Ball’ is ideal for small spaces and low hedges as well as in pots and for topiary.

As it is resistant to drought, wind and seaspray, it provides an alternative to box in temperate and Mediterranean areas. In May and June its small discreet violet-coloured flowers smell of honey.
