  • Notes

Pittosporum crassifolium 'Nana' is an evergreen shrub. Can reach 2-3ft high with multiple colors of green in the foliage. Because of this quality the plant is both an excellent foundation planting and accent plant.
Planting instructions: Dig hole, insert plant slightly higher than soil grade. Disturb root ball very little. No amendments, just native soil. No fertilizers. Backfill the hole. Mulch top of soil around plant in a 2-3' diameter circle. Water lavishly.
