Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Cratus’ Description

A popular species that can be used for hedging, topiary or grown into a little tree which, in the right position, can reach to 25ft or more if required but is usually grown as a compact shrub or hedge. Pittosporum tenuifolium Cratus is a pretty evergreen with oval, glossy, silver-green leaves featuring a wavy, undulating edge on contrasting dark wood stems. It is faster growing when young, however its dense habit makes it an ideal choice for a low growing hedge or garden shrub and it is easily maintained at the desired height.

Pittosporum is tolerant of coastal conditions and is easy to grow in fertile, moist but well-drained, soil. May need protection in colder climes especially from cold, drying winds. Plant in full sun for the best leaf effect although it will tolerate partially shaded spots too.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.


For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.
