Osmanthus fragrans (new)

One of the finest evergreen shrubs for fragrance, the clusters of creamy flowers in summer are strongly and deliciously fragrant and very different in this respect to others in the genus. Unfortunately not the hardiest species, so best suited to milder gardens or excellent as a potted plant, overwintered with protection. The new foliage emerges purple.
