Weeping Pittosporum Overview
Pittosporum phillyreoides is an evergreen shrub or small columnar tree with weeping form that is native to Australia and is reputed to have medicinal properties. Also known as Willow Pittosporum, Weeping Pittosporum and Desert Willow, Pittosporum phillyreoides, it has long, thick leaves that are paler on the underside and its cream-yellow, bell-shaped flowers appear in summer. These are followed by spherical, yellow seed capsules. It is drought tolerant once established and easily pruned (during dormant season)to an attractive, bushy shape. It makes a good shade tree or screen in a garden setting. However, it has a tendency to sucker, so plant in a position where this will not be a problem.
