osmanthus tree    This is a favorite old-fashioned evergreen shrub or small tree most notable for its sweetly fragrant flowers. Work's well as a foundation plant when used to cover a blank wall or as a corner plant. Makes a healthy, dense and wonderfully scented small tree.    We often plant Tea Olive near patios, decks, and other sitting areas where the fraganced can be enjoyed. One plant can emit enough fragrance to cover a small backyard!

Sweet Olive ‘Fudingzhu’ (Osmanthus fragrans)This new cultivar of Sweet Olive is remarkable for its large, fragrant bloom clusters. It flowers so heavily that the blossoms totally encircle the branches, and the leaves seem to emerge from the large bunches of white fragrant flowers.
