Pittosporum phillyraeoides-Weeping Pittosporum

   Australian weeping tree to about 20' tall. Leaves are narrow and evergreen and hang straight down. Flowers are fragrant in winter and followed by hard orange fruit that splits open to reveal dark red sticky seeds. Has proved to be quite accepting of conditions in the Southwest deserts.
