( Fragrant Tea Olive )
|Osmanthus fragrans is the least cold hardy member of the genus. Along mild coastal areas it can grow to be a large shrub or small tree, reaching 20 to 30 feet tall, inland it suffers from frost damage, and is smaller. The evergreen leaves are leathery, dark green and glossy above, lighter green and downy on underside. It has the most fragrant flowers of the Osmanthus group. A cut branch with tiny white flowers will fill a room with sweet perfume. It blooms in mid to late spring and could be used as a container plant near an entranceway.
