Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Variegatus'


Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Variegatus'

This plant is about six years old, so you can see how slowly this evergreen flowering shrub grows. This one is in full shade.

I have this one Karen - so nice - but ours in full sun - wonderful plants - yes very slow growers

Another good one, a useful evergreen.

Thanks everyone. I took this because it was missing from my catalogue pages, but tbh It is one of those shrubs that is mostly ignored, just fills a gap on the fence....under-appreciated!

Very nice. Does it have a soil preference?

Yes, it likes soil....which is sad for this one, as it is planted in builders sand....here is RHS advice...

Fertile, well-drained, preferably neutral to acid but some lime is tolerated

This is lovely, and I have a very shady space to fill, but I'm not too patient with slow growers I'm afraid!

Who is Louisa? I think I am the least patient gardener in the world! I thought gardening would teach me to be patient, but I've been at it about 25 years now and I seem to be exactly as impatient as I always was! Lol!
