This hardy tree will only require the occasional pruning necessary to achieve your required height and shape. Aside from that it’s a disease-resistant specimen that can withstand harsh winter temps down to 10 degrees.

It's Easy to Plant your Fragrant Tea Olive

Specific Directions for Fragrant Tea Olive
Your Fragrant Tea Olive will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. For a hedge place your Fragrant Tea olives about 4 feet apart and their foliage will fill in.

Fragrant Tea Olives prefer slightly acidic soil but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sand or heavy in clay. If your soil is extra sandy mix in some potting soil prior to planting. Let your soil dry to the touch about three inches down in between waterings.

Every Spring fertilize your Fragrant Tea Olive with a well balanced fertilizer. We recommend Formula 10-10-10 or 16-4-8. Fragrant Tea Olives bloom multiple times a year around. Their blooms might be small but their fragrance is huge!


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Fragrant Tea Olive.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Fragrant Tea Olive gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Fragrant Tea Olive again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

So Fragrant for Such Small Flowers
We have had our 5 shrubs for 2-3 years. They are not a fast growing plant, but that's alright with me. What we love is they bloom pretty much on and off all year - even when it's cold and foggy. We live in the Central San Joaquin Valley in California and it gets cold in the winter and extremely hot in the summertime. The blooms are very small but their fragrance is huge, and the scent carries a long way. Ours don't seem to need a huge amount of water, but what we did find out is: 4 of ours are watered with the grass, but we did not water very much this last summer because of the drought, but we also have 1 on a drip line, and while it does not get very much water at a time, it is consistent and that one is 3-4 times the size of the others. The fragrance to me is a cross between a rose scent and a fresh peach. WONDERFUL!

I purchased this plant for the first time.I was looking for a more interesting evergreen choice.It arrived in great condition,but I wasn't sure it would survive a NJ winter.The first was one blizzard after another,the second,very mild.The tea olive has doubled in height,has new leaves fairly often and I look forward to enjoying it's fragrance before long.Much hardier than I would have imagined (just like the frost proof gardenia)

My First Tea Olive
This is the first time I have had this type of tree.I have planted in a large pot to keep outside. It has done amazingly well in the few months I have planted it. Tremendous fast growth of new leaves. Seems hardy. I live in Northern FL (growing group 8). Our winters are quirky at best some winters mild others.. well we have had snow. I am planning on wrapping the plant on freeze warning nights and hope for the best

My Tea Olive came perfectly wrapped & healthy. The plant was much larger than I had expected, which was a double-treat. It's now end of Sept. and there are several small flowers on it. I may purchase another in the spring.

Tea Olive (osmanthus fragrans)
Love my tea olives. Put in the same order as last year and plants received this year were almost three times as big. Healthy, robust plants. Hardiness between tender and moderate in walled garden in Washington, DC. Two severe winters caused quite a bit of dieback which did not occur during our more normal, milder winters. Would order again!

Wonderful gift!
I gave this to my mother in Washington state. She is thrilled. She put it in direct sun during a heat-wave. This unfortunately caused the new growth to droop. She then moved it to a more sheltered back deck and it revived nicely and has new growth and is starting to blossom with faint, but promising scent. I ordered for her the big one which has since branched out and is noticeably fuller from only three months ago (Mother's Day). Zone 8, but close to Zone 7 (variable weather).

I bought these because I wanted something unusual. Most hedges in our area are laurel, rhody, mock orange, etc. The flowers smell lovely. When I purchased, the information on Fast Growing Trees said they grew 2-3 feet a year. That's no longer mentioned. The updated information states they're slow growers. Bummer. My husband especially wanted a hedge ""yesterday"". So I have to constantly talk them up a bit. Two also have leaves that crinkle and don't seem to thrive. They're lovely however, and out of ten plants that shipped, only two are affected.

Not cold hardy
Despite its being enclosed in a protective "shrub bag," my 18-inch (1 gallon) fragrant tea olive did not survive the winter. The plant's growing zones are given as "7-9." My area (New York City) is classified as either zone 7 or 6B.

In fairness, I also had a windmill palm tree for 5 years, and it, too, despite being enclosed in a similar protective winter bag, did not survive that same winter.

Not What I Expected
My tree looks nothing like the photos and has little to no smell. I am definitely dissapointed but it is green and fills a space in my yard so I will keep it. My tree is growing straight up with all the branches still looking like they are bound together from shipping. All branches grow straight up and none are growing outward. I have had a few flowers but they do not smell very strong. Not sure what all the hype was over this tree unless I just got a dud.

Can I keep it in a pot and keep it indoor in winter? I live in Zone 4 to 5.
Ami B on May 8, 2015
Best Answer: yes, you can grow it in a pot. It will need more care than one grown in the garden, of course. The pot and potting medium must have good drainage, and do not water until the top 2-3 inches of the medium are dry. When you bring it inside for the winter, be sure it has as much light as possible,; it would help if, in the spring and in the late fall, you bring the pot outdoor during the day to a sunny spot, and then leave it outdoors all the time as soon as heavy frots are done.Fertilize only during the summer, when active growth is occurring, and before bringing in your pot for winter, you will need to leach out the excess fertilizer by letting water trickle through your pot for 3-4 hours. It takes some work, but this plant is well worth growing!

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.





Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
