Heavily Scented Flowers that Bloom in Fall & Winter The Fragrant Tea Olive Tree, or Osmanthus Fragrans, is an excellent choice to sweeten up your garden with its incredibly delectable scent and soft white blossoms. The sweet olive tree may even attract butterflies with the sweet scent. The lush, green foliage of the Tea Olive shrub has pale undersides and is accompanied by a multitude of small, extremely sweet-smelling white flowers. The tiny creamy white tea olive tree blooms will perfume the entire landscape. Since the fragrant olive tree flowers are not noticeably showy, visitors in your garden or landscape will wonder where the delightful fragrance is coming from. They will get their answer as soon as they pass this dense evergreen shrub with dark green leaves that keep their color all year long. With its upright, vase-shaped growth habit, the sweet osmanthus tea olive bush is ideal for use as a fragrant specimen plant, privacy hedge, or can be trained to grow as a small tree. The sweet Olive shrub should be placed where its delightful fragrance can be enjoyed. We enjoy seeing it as a border hedge in multiple foundation plantings.
