Pittosporum sp. we don't know what it is but we know it's hardy to below 0 F
We obtained it from North Carolina State University, doubtless an acquisition of J C Raulson. It has those pleasant little yellow flowers with a wonderful fragrance. Pittosporum tobira, is I guess the commonest of the genus but it can only be grown here with microclimates and magic. We just received Pittosporum parvilimbum and P. illicioides 'Strappy' from Cistus Nursery. The former looks a bit like our plant. Anyway, I always say, you can't have enough fragrant shade evergreens.
