Grown for its attractive, variegated dense foliage, the leaves of Pittosporum 'Silver Ball' are carried on striking dark stems. One of the hardiest pittosporums, it's perfect in a gravel garden or container to which its compact shape is ideally suited.
A compact, rounded evergreen with creamy edged grey-green leaves will form a neat mound with very little effort on your part. 'Silver Ball' lends itself well to topiary and its natural shape makes it an interesting alternative to Box balls.
During May and June small, honey scented bell shaped darp purple flowers appear, contrasting well against the pale shades of the foliage.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot ready for immediate planting, 'Silver Ball' will reach approx. 1m in 10 years.
