  1. Soil: Variegated Pittosporum prefers well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Amend the soil with compost to improve drainage and add nutrients.
  2. Spacing: Space the plants 4-6 feet apart to allow for proper growth and air circulation.
  3. Water: Water the newly planted shrubs deeply and consistently until they are established. After that, they can tolerate some drought but will benefit from regular watering.


  1. Fertilization: Apply a balanced slow-release fertilizer in the spring to promote healthy growth and flowering.
  2. Pruning: Prune the shrub in late winter or early spring to maintain shape and size. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches.
  3. Pest and Disease Control: Variegated Pittosporum is relatively pest and disease resistant. Monitor for common pests like aphids and scale, and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil as needed.


  1. Mulch: Add a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to conserve moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth.
  2. Winter Protection: In colder climates, provide some protection from harsh winds and frost by placing a burlap barrier around the plant or using a frost blanket.

  4. Wildlife Attraction: The flowers attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, while the dense branches provide shelter for birds.
