Variegated Holly-leaf Osmanthus. Probably the best known variegated plant of this genus, this cultivar has incredible cream-white margins with a pewter-green interior. This plant flowers as well as the species, but since the foliage is so prominent, one barely notices the fragrant flowers. If left unattended, this selection can get up to 6'- 8' or more, but it can be easily maintained at 3'- 4' with a small amount of judicious pruning. It will grow in full sun to fairly dense shade.
