The Plants

Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Gold Ball'


Photo of Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Gold Ball'


The variety ‘Golden Ball’ has very brilliant golden foliage. In its period of growth, its young golden-yellow leaves contrast with the older yellow-green leaves edged with a stronger green.
Coming from the same breeding than Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Golf Ball’, ‘Golden Ball’ has the same qualities: very dense, it naturally forms a ball of less than one meter. Fast-growing and branching from the base, it can be pruned. ‘Golden Ball’ is ideal for small spaces and low hedges as well as in pots and for topiary.
