Kangai Sunburst Pittosporum. This is an unusual new introduction from Japan. The new growth emerges with cream-white variegated margins to its leaves which later fades to green. As each flush emerges, it contrasts beautifully with the darker green older leaves. It does not have the soft cream white variegation of the more common Variegated Pittosporum. As it ages, this plant will begin to have terminal clusters of fragrant white flowers which slowly turn from white to yellow. If one is too far north to grow this plant outdoors, it makes a wonderful pot plant. This selection is compact in growth habit making it ideal for the residential landscape where one does not need a tall plant. It is doing quite well in the J.C. Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC, so this peaks well for its cold hardiness. Grow in full sun to shade, giving it good drainage and ample moisture.
