Hi, I had 2, one variegated and one green. Both had dark brown/purple flowers which was a surprise.
They were very unkempt and I pruned them to the shape I wanted (standard cube). I don't think its a problem to take that much off the height and tidy it up now. It will look abit bare but it will have the rest of the summer and autumn to grow.
My pittosporums now I just give a trim when the top gets untidy and also do the sides and lower down.
I haven't had any bits go brown or large chunks die off either.
Hope this helps.
