Osmanthus fragrans - (Tea olive, fragrant olive, sweet olive).. Do all these plants have a Strong Fragrance?...Could you tell me what the scents would be?
Thank you for your time in advance!
Very strong apricot scent, one of the most popular plants here. You can find out a lot more just by searching this forum.
Smells like Henna to me. I have one and I like it! It needs shade this far south (sarasota)
So far it's my my favorite scent of all my plants, I just had a huge flush on my 5 gallon plant, it is just such a wonderful fresh sweet apricot smell that fills my whole patio with it's luscious scent! Between that plant and my Michelia Alba and brugs I'm in frangrant cloud heaven! I just wish it bloomed all year.
i have quite a few of these and they are truly my favorite shrub.
it smells like stewed apricots with vanilla syrup and worthy of a place in your garden.
Oh yes, I've never met a sweet olive that I didn't like! The fragrance is so strong that if you have a good size bush you can smell it from a few yards away. It's never heavy or cloying but smells exactly like perfectly ripe, warm, fresh apricots. It's a deliciously fruity scent but oddly a few people I've met(DH is one) can't smell it at all, they really miss out on something wonderful.
