Fragrant Princess False Holly or so the translation goes. You cannot help but like this diminutive version with its deep green miniature hollyesque leaves and its scented typical Osmanthus-sized white flowers. This grows ridiculously slow and should you live long enough, plan on having a garden party when your aged Fragrant Princess reaches 3 feet tall. On second thought, better plan on that party when she reaches 2 feet.
Sweet Olive. A collection by Wynn-Jones and Hinkley from the Milke Danda in eastern Nepal. This has similar, fragrant white flowers to the more common Osmanthus delavayi and shares the same blue-purple olive-shaped fruit. A good evergreen shrub that the deer shun and will be a durable landscape plant for zones 8-9 where aside from the fragrance, it is good for screening.
This evergreen large shrub is a hybrid of O. fragrans x O. heterophyllus and is usefully for screening as it will be very dense. The fall white flowers although small, bunch up in packs, and perfume the air with a scent of jasmine. That should be enough right there but to pile on just a bit, very deer resistant and tolerant of periods of drought. Ok, now that is enough.
