Photo - Silver Sheen Pittosporum (Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Sheen')

This fast growing shrub is perfect for screening 10' to 12' in height.
Silver Sheen Pittosporum gets about 3' to 4' in width.  To create
a dense screen, plant these shrubs abou 3' apart and prune
twice per year to increase leaf density.

  1. Doug, we've grown these in a corner of our garden and they've become small trees (about 15ft tall and 6' wide in north Fullerton). Can they really be kept to the dimensions you noted? Have friends who need screening. Thanks.
