Tree File
Tea Olive - Tree Form
Osmanthus fragrans
Height:   8-12'
Width:   5-6'
Exposure:   Sun
Water:   Low once established
Hardiness:   USDA Zones 7-9
Pruning:   Prune as desired to control height and maintain desired form.

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!

In Zone 8, Tea olive blooms heaviest in spring and fall during cooler weather and will even produce blooms during warm days of winter. Tolerates heavy clay soil well and is drought and deer resistant.
