Pittosporum Tom Thumb in a 7L Decopot


Pittosporum Tom Thumb in a 7L Decopot

For something a little bit different, the Pittosporum Tom Thumb is an intriguing and slow growing evergreen shrub that offers up the most wonderful foliage display all year long.

More everpurple than evergreen, Tom Thumb has the most eye-catching deepest burgundy, almost black leaves, which provide a fabulous foil for brighter colours or golden foliage contrasts.

A tough and short growing little evergreen, it also makes a unique low maintenance hedge, but it can also be grown in pots for a wonderfully different patio feature.

Each spring it produces lime green new shoots, which darken over the season, and the following year are deep purple. Thus, in summer, you'll have a lovely two-tone contrast.
