Osmanthus tricolor vs Goshiki

nikgrApril 30, 2009

I have just bought an Osmanthus heterophyllus tricolor - at least that's what it says on the tag of the plant. It is one foot high and thus much better developed than the 4-5" Osmanthus heterophyllus Goshiki (again what was written on the tag) that I bought two weeks ago.

Could anyone explain to me if there is any difference between these two plants, or are they one and the same plant for which nurseries use these two names. So far I have failed to see any difference between the two plants.
