Pittosporum viridiflorum | Cheesewood for sale | Kasuur
Cheesewood is frost mildly tolerant but is sensitive to dry conditions. It is an evergreen tree, growing at an average rate. Pittosporum viridiflorum quickly develops a dense, spreading crown and is therefore an ideal shade tree. Leaves have a pleasant smell when crushed. A Cheesewood tree in full fruit (clusters of bright yellow berries) is a beautiful sight, attracting many bird species. Pittosporum viridiflorum has a somewhat aggressive root system. The tree grows large over time and is recommended for large gardens only. Cheesewood does well in a large pot or container - a proven solution for the small garden.
Value to honeybees: Nectar, N3; Pollen, P2; Flowering months 9-2, (10-11). (See blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
