Why Fragrant Tea Olive Trees?
An unforgettable fragrance merges with slow but steady growth, making the Tea Olive Tree a must-have for your garden. And because the Fragrant Tea Olive grows slowly, its dense evergreen growth can be pruned into a hedge or shrub, providing an effective and decorative screen that's adaptable to your needs.
Plus, its glossy green leaves serve as the perfect backdrop to white blooms that will emerge both late in the fall and early in the spring. And when they do, get ready for the sweet, memorable scent that has made the Tea Olive Tree a favorite amongst landscape designers and gardeners the world over.
Reminiscent of gardenia and jasmine, your Tea Olive will thrill each season as it delivers a unique and memorable fragrance. With a scent so whimsical and wonderful, you'd think the Tea Olive would be a handful when it comes to upkeep.

Tea Olive Purchase
Wonderful looking and smelling plants!!!
Very Nice Plants
These arrived in excellent condition and were better than expected. They look healthy although somewhat root bound, one had blooms on it. I am pleased with this purchase.
Fragrant tea olive tree
They looked wonderful when they got here and had detailed directions on planting. They look beautiful in the ground and I definitely will be ordering from you again.
I am very pleased with this company. My tree arrived intact, over 3 feet tall (as described) and after a few weeks still looks lovely. I can't wait to see it bloom and grow! Hoping to block the view of my unsightly AC unit. Planted by my patio so I can enjoy the fragrance.
Fragrant Tea Olive Tree
The plant arrived in excellent condition and was in bloom. I had initially encountered the Tea Olive in New Orleans about 30 years ago and loved the fragrance. This was a great find.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Before planting your Tea Olive in the ground, moisten the roots and set it in the shade for a few days. When you’re ready to plant, place your Fragrant Tea Olive tree in full sun to partial shade, avoiding deep shade (4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily). Although clay, loam and sandy soil can accommodate your tree, try to choose a location with well-draining, slightly acidic soil.
Dig a hole about as deep as the root ball and about twice as wide. Set the tree in the hole, spreading out the roots over the surface of the hole. Fill the hole in with a mixture of the original soil and any additional topsoil required. Eliminate any air pockets that may have formed by tamping down firmly. Water the area until the top 3 inches of soil becomes moist but not soaked.
2. Watering: Water regularly in the first year after planting. Wait until the top 3 inches of soil dry out before watering again. Soon after the first year, your Tea Olive will become drought tolerant and only need water during extended droughts.
3. Fertilizing: Apply a complete fertilizer in early spring such as 10-10-10, preferably one with slow-release nitrogen and follow the directions on the packaging.
