Pittosporum are evergreen shrubs or trees with simple, leathery leaves and small, often fragrant, 5-petalled flowers, followed by spherical, woody fruits splitting to reveal seeds embedded in sticky pulp.
'Arundel Green' is an erect cultivar with semi-glossy green leaves with undulate margins. Older branches are smooth and dark grey, while younger twigs are very dark purplish-red. Small, scented, near-black flowers may been seen in late spring and summer; the flowers have red filaments but there is no viable pollen produced so this cultivar is female.
