Splayed out is a Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Irene Patterson’ with its beautiful, wavy, variegated and relatively small leaves…unfortunately splayed out wide by the snow. This is a common hedge plant in California and typically grows relatively fast with small diameter stems all combining to make this result expected. It could have been tied with a ‘belly wrap’ to support it or been cut back to reduce its height and its tendency to splay. This can be cut hard and they will recover. The palm is Trachycarpus takil, hardy here and pretty much immune to snow damage here.
