Osmanthus x fortunei

Fortune's Osmanthus, or Fortune's Tea Olive, is a hybrid of Osmanthus fragrans and Osmanthus heterophyllus. This beautiful broadleaf evergreen can reach 15-20' in height and spread. It has dark-green, lustrous, spiny leaves. Excellent for screening. By the time they reach mature size, usually these plants have been limbed up to look like trees. If not, they are huge, multi-stemmed shrubs. Fragrant, tiny, white flowers appear in the fall. Drought tolerant.
