Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Ball'

A silver ball for low hedges or in isolation

More details

Description

The highly elegant ‘Silver Ball’ plays on its silvery-grey tones. Its small, shiny grey-green leaves are finely edged in creamy-white.
Coming from the same breeding than Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Golf Ball’, ‘Silver Ball’ has the same qualities: very dense, it naturally forms a ball of less than one meter. Fast-growing and branching at the base, it can be pruned. ‘Silver Ball’ is ideal for growing in 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.
