Dwarf Pittosporum


The Dwarf Pittosporum is one of the smallest plants in its family. It only grows two to three feet tall but maintains a beautiful rounded shape. Prized for its dense growth, the Dwarf Pittosporum looks great as a border plant, ground cover, or in a container. Although rare, when it does bloom it produces beautiful small orange flowers that are incredibly fragrant.
