Red Flowering Tea Olive

butterfly4uDecember 5, 2013

Fall of 2012 I bought a red flowering fragrant tea olive form Nuseries Carolina. I just planted it in the ground about 4 months ago. It has grown and is doing fine.
When I bought it, the owner had stated that his had not bloomed yet. He bought the mother plant home from Japan.
There was someone on this forum who wanted to see a pic of it.
I was on his Facebook page and he had a pic of the bloom.
It finally bloomed.
It is dark orange.
Looks very nice.
If you are interested in seeing the bloom, just look up Nurseries Carolina on the web, you can see the FB page I think right from the search engine.
It's a dark beautiful orange, but it isn't red.
I don't care, I am looking forward to the bloom in orange in any case. It's beautiful.
Love sweet olive trees.

As expected, "red" being an exaggeration.
