Pittosporum 7°C/45°F; Australia/New Zealand

Hardy in milder areas, but suggested minimum temperature will give better results when plants are being grown in pots of good loam. Many types available, and most are much used by florists for mixing in with cut flowers as pleasant glossy green foliage. There are variegated varieties and some with attractive undulating leaf margins. Propagate in July from 10cm/4in-long cuttings of half-ripe lateral shoots and insert in a propagating frame.
