Pit­tospo­rum tenuifolium ‘Col­laig Sil­ver’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

This is one of the finest of the many sil­ver var­ie­gated pit­tospo­rums, com­bin­ing pewtered sage leaves edged with cream, with the faintest tinge of pink at the very edges. The hand­some black twigs per­fectly set off the fo­liage and in good years, you may even get those choco­lates­cented spring flow­ers nestling in the fo­liage. Sadly it does not seem to be in New Zealand yet, but ‘Sil­ver Magic’ is a very sim­i­lar va­ri­ety that is widely avail­able here.
