This still happens - just passing within a couple of metres of a flowering kohukohu starts me coughing. moment, as I looked out the window today (windows face west and breeze off Pacific -- even on a lovely day like ours -- is a bit much than I need being on the 3rd floor and directly in its path.) Perennials, Grasses, CA Native Plants, and Drought Tolerant Shrubs. Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Sheen' (Silver Sheen Kohuhu) - An evergreen upright shrub that can grow upwards to 12-15 feet tall (with age to at least 20 ft) with small oval silver-green leaves held on thin black branches. Can be maintained as a very nice looking formal hedge to 3 to 6 feet tall if tip-pruned regularly.

It's upright growth habit is predictable and easy to maintain. You must select at least 1 quantity for this product. Plant database entry for Kohuhu (Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Silver Sheen') with 2 images and 26 data details. One of my Pittosporum hedges is about 2.5m X 4m and has been trimmed into a nice rec... read moretangular hedge lining my front door entrance. The first time this happened I did not know the cause, only suspected it. I just lost the desire to do anything except read a bit and essential housework. Pittosporum tenuifolium "Silver Sheen" looks wonderful at the BACK of a garden. I hope to plant another, if I can find the space. It's wispy attractive foliage also makes it a great choice to use as a single specimen or highlighting flanking columns to 'grand' up and entry. Every time we park our car next to it in our drive way we may brush past it to get to the front door of my house. Large shrub or small tree from New Zealand. And this includes during our 5 years of drought. I'm 60 and have never known myself to be allergic to anything -- but I had an "aha!" I replant them to better suit the garden and replace older trees that periodically die off. I lost my sense of smell in this episode, couldn't even smell eucalyptus, but could still smell - kohukohu - a slightly fruity pungent asphalt smell especially in the early morning. My sense of smell is nearly better now. However, in hotter inland climates, it will not perform as well often times. Very nice plant/tree! THIS IS AN ODD FACT: I have never once watered the tree. This is further enhanced if a gentle breeze causes the branches to move, making the plant shimmer. HOWEVER...I have been to the doc 3x now for a cough that just will not go away.
