Comments: This cultivar probably has been established in the nursery trade for some time, although it is uncommon in the southeastern U.S. It has medium green leaves edged with a golden rim. It could be used as a ground cover, as could the other compact growing pittosporums. Its white, fragrant flowers and red seeds are additional attributes. Is used as a specimen plant very effectively.
