Reliable and resilient, there’s a reason that the Green Pittosporum is a staple in landscapes across the nation! Its foliage is rich and dark green with a fantastic gloss. These leaves are evergreen, plentiful, and consistent. Each leaf is smooth and rounded on the end. Furthermore, once established this plant proves to be remarkably low-maintenance.

 

In spring, the Japanese Mock Orange earns its name. It produces small clusters of petite white blooms that smell much like an orange blossom. Plant a couple of next to your patio to enjoy their sweet fragrance every year!

 

This is a moderate growing variety, which means that it will grow somewhere between 12-20 inches every year.

 

The Green Pittosporum reaches 10-12′ H x 10-12′ W when fully grown. However, it responds well to a yearly trimming.

 

Coastal Gardeners will appreciate the salt tolerance of the Green Pittosporum. Pair it with other salt-tolerant varieties in a mixed garden bed, such as the Light Show Bottlebrush or Twist of Pink Oleander.

 

Looking for a little extra foliage flair? The Variegated Pittosporum is a very similar variety with white-edged leaves. Alternatively, the Mojo Pittosporum is a dwarf variety of variegated pittosporum with bolder leaf color.

 

Try the Green Pittosporum as a hedge, screen, border, accent, or container plant.

 

Green Pittosporum (Japanese Mock Orange) Care

Winter hardy in USDA Zones 8-11, down to 10°f once established.

 

Plant in Full Sun to Partial Shade for best results. Too much leads to decreased foliage and bloom potential.

 

Water 3-4 times per week in the first growing season. During the second year, water 2-3 times per week. Increase watering frequency in times of extreme heat and drought.

 

The Green Pittosporum prefers rich soil with good drainage.

 

Fertilize a couple of times during the year with a balanced fertilizer to promote plant growth.

 

Green Pittosporum (Japanese Mock Orange) Spacing Recommendations

Space your Green Pittosporum 3-5 feet apart for a seamless hedge or border. Plant them 8-10+ feet apart to leave space between them.
