Family: Pittosporaceae
Japanese Mockorange, Japanese Pittosporum, Tobira
Origin: China, Formosa, Japan
Can be used for bonsaiLarge shrub 5-10 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

In general the Japanese pittosporum grows taller in the shade while those grown in full sun are more compact. The leathery leaves are glossy on the top with undersides that are lighter and have a dull surface. These very ornamental leaves reach a length of from 1-5 in and up to 1 in wide with edges that recurve (curl down and inward).The small flowers are about 0.5" in diameter and are held in clusters at the branch tips. They are pure white when they emerge from the bud and slowly age to a mellow creamy yellow. This plant is very adaptable and will grow in most soils except for those that are constantly wet. Moderate moisture is required for fastest growth and best looks. Established plants are able to survive long periods of drought but will look the worse for wear - will recover when adequate moisture is obtained. Propagation: By cuttings and seeds.

Japanese Mockorange, Japanese Pittosporum, Tobira. Origin: China, Formosa, Japan.
This is a very interesting unusual plant suitable for potting and bonsai culture. The leathery leaves are glossy on the top with undersides that are lighter and have a dull surface. These very ornamental leaves reach a length of from 1-5 in and up to 1 in wide with edges that recurve (curl down and inward). The fragrant flowers are about 0.5" in diameter and are held in clusters at the branch tips. They are pure white when they emerge from the bud and slowly age to a mellow creamy yellow. This plant is very adaptable and will grow in most soils except for those that are constantly wet. Moderate moisture is required for fastest growth and best looks. Established plants are able to survive long periods of drought but will look the worse for wear - will recover when adequate moisture is obtained.
