To the person who was curious about Osmanthus...

myrtleoak(z7 TN)July 4, 2011

Let me know if you still want to come see it. I was mistaken about the species; it is, in fact, fragrans and has done well for me here in Knoxville. I have it planted in a semi-protected pocket between a tall bamboo hedge and my house. Slight tip dieback is not uncommon some years, but it always comes back strong and is now 5 ft tall. Don't let the zone warming deniers convince you otherwise!

Hi, Myrtle Oak! Yes, it was me, Red_Bird, that asked about the osmanthus fragrans. (Great memory, Brandon!) Thanks for the nudge. I will write you directly today via the formum email.

Hey, MyrtleOak. I'm just writing to confirm that I wrote you via the forum email (regarding the sweet olive). Please post here if you did *not* receive the message.
