Osmanthus delavayi: no fragrance?
I was at a high-end local nursery, they had about 12 fully blooming Osmanthus delavayi in 1 gallon pots, stuck my nose right up to all of them, ZERO fragrance. Considering this shrub is reported as fragrant I'm not sure what to make of this. In this particular variety is there a lot of variance from plant to plant regarding fragrance? Or fragrance doesn't develop until plant is larger? Or ??? Because I was quite shocked when NONE of them had ANY fragrance of any kind.
