Variegated Pittosporum Common Name: Variegated Pittosporum

Botanical Name: Pittosporum tobira "Varigata" (Pittosporum Family)

Description: 12" to 18" long, woody stemmed shrub branching into several 4" long, densely compacted foliage. Leaves are milky or greyish-green with raggedly margined creamy-white edges. Also very shiny texture.

Seasonal Availability: Year-round

Vase Life: 10 - 14 days

Purchasing Hints: Foliage should be clean and waxy in appearance.

Care and Handling:
Remove bundle ties and slant cut one inch from stems base. Place stems in tepid, 2" - 3" water. Condition at room temperature for an hour and then place in a 36F degree cooler.

Design Tips: Use "rosettes" as focal point in designs. The variegation in color adds a beautiful contrast in garlands and table garnishing. Cover floral foam figures for a fresh topiary. Double cut the stems base into a "V" shape for easy insertion into floral foam. Pittosporum is always a favorite for weddings.
