Due to the winter weather, orders from these states will ship in the spring, April to May: CA, CO, IA, ID, KS, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NE, NH, NV, OR, SD, UT, VT, WA, WI, WY. And due to the extreme cold and wind which we experienced through the Christmas holidays of December 2022, many Osmanthus varieties won't be shipped until we are assured there is no cold damage. This may be as late as April or May, 2023. We may choose to delay shipping other plants as well.

Golden Fragrant Tea Olive. This new Fragrant Tea Olive cultivar from China has golden new growth whose leaves harden off to green as they mature. See the third photo as it begins to harden off. It hasn't flowered for us yet, but we are supposing it to be white. One of the best characteristics of the Osmanthus genus is that it has proven deer-resistant for us. The tender new growth has been nipped a little, but nothing serious, and no mature foliage has ever been damaged. The thick texture of the leaves makes me believe that it will be more cold-hardy than the species. As far as I know this is the first offering of this cultivar in the U.S.
