Grown for its dramatic foliage, the marbled leaves of Pittosporum 'Tom Thumb' are carried on striking black stems. One of the hardiest pittosporums, it's perfect in a gravel garden or container to which its compact shape is ideally suited.
A rounded evergreen, the deep purple, crinkled leaves will form a neat mound with very little effort on your part. Very much on trend to cut for indoor flower arrangements, its lighter new growth looks almost like a light green candle flame as it contrasts delightfully with the darker stems.
Easy to grow, this is a plant fully deserving of its Award of Garden Merit, as accolade given out by the RHS to give you the assurance that his plant has been rigorously tested and declared garden worthy!
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot ready for immediate planting, 'Tom Thumb' will reach approx. 50cm x 50cm in 10 years.
