Pittosporum Tenuifolium shrubs are bushy evergreen shrubs with delicate looking grey-green leaves with white margins originating from New Zealand. They provide ornamental foliage and structure to the garden.  Pittosporum Tenuifolium Silver Queen is a variegated variety of these low growing pittosporum evegreens, popularly grown for their foliage and structure. Silver Queen has grey to green leaves that have a pretty white edging. From a distance Pittosporum Tenuifolium Silver Queen glows silvery-white. 
In the springtime bell-shaped purple flowers appear in small clusters. These are not big and showy but do produce scent that attracts pollinators. Seeds will follow these flowers providing food for wildlife. 
Pittosporum Tenuifolium Silver Queen will grow to a height of one and a half metres and spread over two metres unless you prune it to contain the spread. 

How Hardy Is Pittosporum Tenuifolium Silver Queen?
Pittosporum Tenuifolium Silver Queen is frost hardy through most of the UK, but may struggle with foliage damage and stem dieback in consistently harsh temperatures, particularly if it’s placed in cold drying winds or water-logged areas. 

How To Use Pittosporum Tenuifolium Silver Queen
Silver Queen’s showy foliage lifts a sheltered mixed border and breaks up a clashing mix of summer blooms. Make sure you plant Silver Queen with plenty of room to grow as she can develop into a large shrub.
Silver Queen’s leaves last a long time in cut flower arrangements and she can be pruned into a specimen shrub or even a medium-height hedge when several are planted together.
Try placing a Pittosporum Silver Queen somewhere you can see her from a window in winter as the evergreen foliage gives a bare garden a colourful boost. 

How To Care For Pittosporum Tenuifolium Silver Queen
All Pittosporum Tenuifolium plants need some shelter from cold winds. Direct sun will encourage leaf colour but it will tolerate partial shade too. 
A Silver Queen will grow best in loam, chalk and sandy soils of any pH, but it needs a well drained soil to avoid root rot. Little other care is needed once established. In the early years you will need to water your shrub regularly and a yearly application of mulch around the roots will boost its overall health. 
You can trim Silver Queen all year round to keep the shape tidy and maintain a neat outline. If you prefer a wild look, simply leave the shrub to grow naturally. 
The RHS have given Pittosporum Tenuifolium Silver Queen the award of garden merit for her attributes.

Other Pittosporum varieties  in our online shop include pittosporum tobira nana (the dwarf low growing variety of the pittosporum tobira),and pittosporum tom thumb.
