Pit­tospo­rum tenuifolium ‘Tan­dara Gold’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

A com­pact va­ri­ety of ko¯hu¯hu¯ and the same vanilla scent from its small spring flow­ers. Small-leaved va­ri­eties make for bet­ter small hedges (and are good for flo­ral work) but need reg­u­lar clip­ping. The name pit­tospo­rum de­rives from the plants’ sticky black seeds: spo­rum means seed in Latin and pitta means pitch. (Leafland Tree Nurs­ery; South­ern Woods Nurs­ery)
