Smells like Heaven! Tea olive blooms heaviest in spring and fall during cooler weather and will even produce blooms during warm days of winter. Tolerates heavy clay soil well and is drought and deer resistant.

Sweet Olive, mmmmm, in Louisiana is where I first smelled this. In old Plantation gardens, and in spring and late fall, just walking down the street. The smell is so incredibly wonderful and beautiful and just....oh... I can not get enough of this smell, really! It's addictive!

Sweet Olive ‘Fudingzhu’ (Osmanthus fragrans)This new cultivar of Sweet Olive is remarkable for its large, fragrant bloom clusters. It flowers so heavily that the blossoms totally encircle the branches, and the leaves seem to emerge from the large bunches of white fragrant flowers.

Sweet olive. "The dense growth habit and dark evergreen foliage of tea olives make them excellent choices for hedges, screens and individual specimen plants." (from Clemson site again)

sweet olive       This smells like you left the U.S. and are in Southeast Asia. Bunches in New Orleans, one bush/small tree will make the whole front or back yard smell like an unusual perfume that you can't get enough of.
