PITTOSPORUM CRASSIFOLIUM KARO In New Zealand

PITTOSPORUM CRASSIFOLIUM - KARO

Fast growing and hardy, the Karo is a small to medium sized tree which grows tall and straight. Dense grey/green rounded shaped leaves are leathery on top and furry underneath and branches are soft and fleshy while young. A contender for one of the hardiest hedging plants around as it has a strong resistance to pest and disease and is able to cope with salty harsh conditions and even mild droughts. It attracts native birds and has a fragrant scent at night. Flowers spring to early summer.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
