Fragrant Tea Olive is a large evergreen shrub or tree that can be used in a variety of ways.
They can be planted in a row and trimmed tightly to act as a privacy screen or they can be pruned to serve as a small focal tree. They grow well in the Carolinas and typically bloom for about 2 months in the fall. Walking through a garden at this time of year there is a good chance of catching their light citrus like fragrance. Their dark green foliage and dense branching, along with their unique fragrance makes Fragrant Tea Olive a good choice to include in any landscape plan.
