The Sweet Pittosporum is very prolific in urban bush land in Eastern Australia, and is one of the few native plants that successfully competes with privet and other introduced species.
Unfortunately, it has been too success in some municipalities, and has been tagged "invasive" by the local council, and placed on their list of noxious plants.
