PittosproumThis shrub is very popular for southern landscapes.

Most of all it is salt tolerant, which makes it excellent for seaside plantings.

It is both a solid green and a variegated plant.

The soil can be fertile and a slightly acid medium is best.

This plant material is probably the best choice for landscaping in our area. It is tolerant of some shade, will perform in north-side locations, and, of course, loves sun.

PittosporumIt pretty much grows as a compact shrub.

The fruit, as shown in the picture, are about 1/2 foot in diameter.

In the spring, the blooms will show its best color.
