Family Pittosporaceae
Originating from New Zealand

A new 'dwarf' Pittosporum with fresh, minty green leaves. As it's name suggests, 'Golf Ball is naturally spherical, but it doesn't seem to be as dwarf as early reports suggested. In fact if left unclipped it rapidly grows to a mound of 1.2m in height.
The good news is that it responds wonderfully to pruning, and if clipped twice a year, it really is possible to rapidly achieve and maintain a small, tight topiary-like ball. Perfect for Japanese style gardens.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun/part shade.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 1.2m

Spread 1.2m
