Golden Fragrant Tea Olive. This is probably not the correct name for this selection in China. I acquired this cultivar from a specialty nursery in Japan with no proper name attached. The new spring growth flushes with burgundy leaves initially, then quickly changes to a golden color, which quickly then turn to an almost pure white, as one can see through the pictures in sequence. Then they slowly "fade" to a rich green. This reminds one of the cultivar 'Quinnan Guifei' as it goes through its various stages of pink to white. It flowers with white, cream-white or yellowish blooms, and it's difficult to predict which color will appear. It is quite vigorous in growth and does well in full sun to part shade.
