Pittosporum Goldstar also known as Kohuhu is a compact variegated evergreen shrub that is easily grown. This mid sized shrub has light green glossy leaves that are blotched with yellow patches. With a year-round interest and remarkable decorative value, Pittosporum Goldstar is an ideal candidate for compact hedges and borders.
The most noteworthy attribute of the Kohuhu Goldstar is its variegated, evergreen foliage. The ovate, wavy leaves are pale green and yellow, with a white midrib. Densely spread on the reddish stems, the foliage stays on the shrub throughout the year. In late spring through to early summer, tiny, maroon flowers emerge. With a compact, bushy habit, this evergreen cultivar can grow to be around 1.5 to 2 metres high and across.
Easy to grow and to care for, Pittosporum Goldstar prefers fertile, moist, but well-drained soil. Although it tolerates partial shade, when planted in full sun, the foliage of this compact shrub is at its best. When choosing a location for your Kohuhu Goldstar, it’s important to pick a spot that’s sheltered from frost and strong winds, as the elements may damage this cultivar.
Not unlike other Pittosporum varieties, the cultivar Goldstar prefers areas with milder climates. Although fully hardy in Britain and Ireland, it might struggle with frost and harsher winters.
Compact and striking, Pittosporum Goldstar is a great choice for mixed shrub borders or medium-sized hedges. Combine this cultivar with rose shrubs for an impressive, lush point in your garden. The variegated foliage offers multiple seasons of interest, and adds texture and colours to a dull, winter garden. This plant can be grown in containers as well, so use this evergreen shrub to brighten your balcony or decorate your patio.
