Narrowleaf Pittosporum

This Woodlanders introduction is a spreading evergreen shrub with small eliptical leaves less than one inch long. It has small yellow fragrant flowers followed by yellow fruits. It was grown from seed collected in China by Frank Bell who mistook it for a Euonymus. Mr. Bell collected it: "West of Benzilan, up E side Beimashan, uner E pass, between E & W passes". Is that more interesting than "It came from Lowe's"?  Several growers and the Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC have indicated that this is a relatively cold hardy Pittosporum which as survived well in areas that are colder than ours.
