|Pittosporum bicolor is a dense, rounded evergreen shrub or small tree, usually reaching 12 to 15 feet in height and 6 to 15 feet in spread. The foliage is glossy, dark green throughout the year. Fragrant, small, nodding, bell-shaped, maroon-crimson flowers appear mainly in spring. They are inconspicuous, but the lovely scent compensates, followed by dark red capsules.
Quite a tolerant plant, will stand sandy soil to clay, hot, dry conditions, salt spray and heavy shade. Can get leaf spot and mealy bugs. Useful as a screen, hedge, or container plant.
Warm climate plant, native to Australia.
