More info

Kohuhu is an upright growing evergreen shrub with medium green ovate leaves on contrasting dark near-black stems. It is typically used to create privacy along a property line or screen unsightly views.  Pittosporum tenuifolium will reach up to 25 feet if left unpruned but should be maintained to a lower height to keep it looking it's best.  It can be kept as a formal tall hedge and can perform well in both sun and nearly full shade.  Drought tolerant once established.  Flowers appear in Spring but are considered non-significant.  Seacoast tolerant. Contains mild toxins.  When planting a hedge row, use at 3 feet on center for best results.  Native to New Zealand.  5 gallon sizes are approximately 30-36" planted.  15 gallon sizes are approximately 4.5-5' planted.  Hardy to 20 deg. F.  One of our favorites!
