Comment
Pittosporum undulatum occurs naturally from south eastern Queensland and eastern New South Wales to eastern Victoria. It has become entrenched as an environmental weed in parts of south eastern Australia where it has been cultivated for its floral perfume. It was first grown in England in 1789 and has been popular in Mediterranean climatic regions such as California.

Thanks Col,

I found that I hadn't done much posting last year so I'm trying to clear the backlog.
