Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Sheen' (P. nigricans) is an evergreen upright shrub that can grow upwards to 15 ft. or more, the Silver Sheen Kohuhu makes an excellent hedge or screen. Aptly named, the foliage of the Silver Sheen Kohuhu has a reflective surface that shimmers in the light and sets it apart from the species. The small glossy green leaves on thin black branches start out round and elongate into an oval shape with age. This cultivar has a more open habit and smaller leaves than the species. Best in coastal regions or with filtered light. Inland heat and full sun may stress this plant too much.
Plant in well-draining soil. Water regularly during the first year to aid the plant in establishing a strong root system, frequency can be cut back once established. Fertilize in the spring and prune to shape.
