Osmanthus delavayi

8th April 2007

One of the pleasures of clearing the old hedging away has been the opportunity to plant a few evergreens, and this Osmanthus is an old friend that I had somehow failed to plant in the garden before this one arrived. Small glossy leaves and clusters of scented white flowers.
A small growing species from western China, first introduced by Abbe Delavayi in 1890.
