This larger leaved Osmanthus has distinctive dark foliage and looser form than most other Osmanthus species. It is an ideal plant for screening plant or foil at the back of the border. Attractive trumpets of white scented blossom during the autumn months provided extra impact.

Cultivation tips: This larger leaved holly like Osmanthus can be planted in full sun or light shade. Avoid planting in very exposed, cold or hot dry areas, preferring a sheltered spot in moist fertile soil. Trim to shape as necessary. Mulch with compost every few years to feed. Ideal for screening or planting as a flowering alternative to holly.
