Re-stock: in 4-6 weeks

Evergreen shrub with sweetly perfumed cream-white flowers traditionally used to flavour Chinese tea and sweets. We think it smells like peach yogurt!

The osmanthus flowers may be small and well hidden but they perfume our whole nursery in winter. Suited to street planting, hedging and containers. Not as cold hardy as our other osmanthus - one for sheltered gardens.
