Osmanthus delavayi

When the wind isn't blowing this shrub has the most delicious scent.
One of original shrub plantings, growing well now.

This has taken 5 years to get to this height, Amy. It's growing slightly above the height of the fence panel. So I'm quite pleased with it. Same time as we planted the pittosporum tenuifolium which is a bit taller.

Lovely, aren't they, Rose? Very neat shiny leaves, too. I wouldn't want to be without it.
