Osmanthus heterophyllus (Large Plant)

Holly Olive, Chines Holly

Hardy Shrub

Known as the Holly Olive or Chinese Holly, Osmanthus heterophyllus is a versatile shrub, capable of growing in most soil conditions. As the name suggests, it's leaves closely resemble those of a holly tree, being multi-spined, and it also has a similar dense, evergreen growing habit. The flowers of this shrub, however, turn into blue/black fruits rather than the traditional bright red. An easy to grow variety, requiring very little maintenance to keep its shape. Height: 5m (16'). Spread 5m (16').
