Notes:

Hello, I am interested in identifying this shrub. I recently moved into a new home and I have four (4) of these shrubs bunched in close together along with a fern an azalea. Once identified I would like to know the success rate in relocating 2 out of the 4. I also want to know if I can cut them way back as a way of taking control over shape/height.

    The leaves & branches are not so clear to tell. I”m wondering if this shrub could be a cultivar in the Pittosporum genus? Possible a variegated form of the Japanese pitosporum (Pittosporum tobira ‘Variegatum’. Click on images from the included link below to enlarge. The second link is for growing, pruning & transplanting methods. Best wishes! http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?taxonid=267346&isprofile=0&
