The Osmanthus, or Osmanthus 'burkwoodii' as it is known in Latin, is an ideal choice for hedging plants, screening, or border planting in the garden. Like many white flowering plants, the Osmanthus has a lovely fragrance that carries a good distance, particularly in the evening, so this is an ideal hedge to plant near the house. Perfect for spring and summer when you can truly enjoy the garden. A good tip is to trim the hedge after flowering as this will increase the flowering for the following year. The Osmanthus is a dense, slow-growing, and large evergreen shrub that can reach an impressive size. When planning the potential size of this plant should be taken into consideration and space ought to be allowed for the spread of a plant.
