Cream De Mint Japanese Mock Orange

Pittosporum tobira 'Cream De Mint'

Originating from Japan, this evergreen shrub grows as a compact mound of dense foliage in mint green, with characteristic creamy white edges. Highly fragrant clusters of small white springtime blooms are attractive to pollinators and people alike, giving off an orange blossom-like fragrance. Wonderfully suited for use as a low maintenance low hedge, or to fill open spots along borders.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
