Are all varieties of myoporum susceptible to the thrips mentioned in this article? We are considering use of myoporum Parvifolium, or Putah Creek on a slope in south central Orange County CA. Would appreciate your thoughts!

Hi Gary, good question.  
Both UC IPM and San Marcos Growers have some good info on Myoporum thrips and the susceptible host species. It apprears, at the time of the writing, Putah Creek had not been damaged by these thrips.  
Here are links to both resources:

You might also check in with the Orange County Master Gardener Program. They'll likely have first hand knowledge and experience specific to your region. Here is a link to their website where you can email your question or fill out an online form with your question and a Master Gardener will contact you.

Best of luck!
