A large shrub or small tree to ten feet tall by four feet wide, that is easily pruned into a desired form. Its handsome, clean foliage and erect trunk add a formal flavor to the grade. New twigs are often dark brown or black, adding an ornamental contrast to the inch-long, variegated green and ivory leaves. Should be kept in well-drained soil with only moderate watering once established and will do well in full sun and/or partial shade. Watch for aphids and other piercing or sucking insects that will disfigure new growth. Hardy to 20F. Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Ivory Sheen’ is available this week in five gallon containers.
