Dense Evergreen With Months Of Fragrance!

Some floral scents draw you into a garden. Some make you want to come closer for a deeper whiff. Some are ingrained in your memory from gardens past. Fragrant Tea Olive, Osmanthus fragrans, will make you stop dead in your tracks and wonder if you're in heaven.

A cross between Gardenia and Jasmine wafts from dainty, white flowers in early spring and again in late fall. Fragrant Tea Olive, is grown for the amazing scent. It isn't a true Olive, so it doesn't produce edible fruit. It is generally grown because has dense, glossy evergreen leaves and can be pruned into a small tree, a large shrub or a soft hedge.

It's such a beautiful and wonderfully scented shrub that you'd think it would be a diva in the garden, but it's not. It is disease-resistant, only needs occasional pruning and just wants a sunny spot to be really happy.

Whether you order it for its beauty or its fragrance, you will be glad you bought it and wonder why you didn't order more.

  • Well Behaved & Easy Care
  • Luscious Scent Spring & Fall
  • Gorgeous, Glossy Evergreen Foliage
  • Hardy, Long Lived Perfect Hedge
