Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime'


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Fragrant Princess False Holly or so the translation goes. You cannot help but like this diminutive version with its deep green miniature hollyesque leaves and its scented typical Osmanthus-sized white flowers. This grows ridiculously slow and should you live long enough, plan on having a garden party when your aged Fragrant Princess reaches 3 feet tall. On second thought, better plan on that party when she reaches 2 feet.
