Almost indestructible, Japanese Pittosporum is a long-lived evergreen shrub. Use this reliable grower as a hedge or in a mixed border. It takes pruning well -- you can easily keep it 3-5 feet tall and wide with regular pruning. Japanese Pittosporum has stiff branches and a dense, broad spreading habit.

Plant it in full sun or part shade and moist, well-drained soil. It tolerates drought, salt spray, and nearly everything else you might throw its way.
