Quite pretty in close-up?

Do you have a name for this Osmanthus Sheila - I saw one like this in a local nursery and there was no label with it. I didn't like to take it before I found out size etc.

Its lovely. Scottish, I have one just like this and it grows ever so slowly, but it does eventually get big. Mine has been in for about 5 years though and has reached the dizzy height of about a foot! I think they can get to about 2m in the end, but I doubt it will be bothered too much if you prune it. Tough as old boots. Mine's been moved at least three times and doesn't even drop a leaf in protest.

I'm sorry, but I don't have a name for this. But agree with Karen - it's a very slow grower. Mine is perhaps 18" or 2 ft, and it's been in the ground (sunny spot) for about nine years.
