Something Sweetly Scented Is At My Place

Hi everyone,

I got a new plant in the mail on Saturday and look at her....

Sweet Olive Revieved 11/13/10

Sweet Olive (Osmanthus fragrans) flowers

Can anyone guess what this is? I know the answer. Not to betray hoyas or other flowers but this is now my favorite floral fragrance. Oh how I wish I could send some your way! Enjoy!

Here is my guess. Is it osmanthus frangrans "sweet olive"?

of course i could be wrong ;) let me know!

RE: Something Sweetly Scented Is At My Place

You're right on the nose, lightning! I like the fact it blooms in the fall and winter and I won't have to live with a flowerless winter after all (of course I still have my Maid of Orleans jasmine and my Thanksgiving cactus). Everyone I showed it to loves the scent!
