Goshiki Osmanthus

Winner of the 2012 Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticulture Society, Goshiki Osmanthus, a Japanese shrub, is ideal for outdoor gardening of all kinds. Its beautiful variegated leaves are topped with tiny, intensely fragrant white blossoms that attract pollinators from far and wide. Since it's evergreen, the Goshiki Osmanthus' leaves will remain throughout the winter. Plant in full sun to partial shade, and water only as often as necessary to keep the soil moist. Once it becomes more established, its draught tolerance will increase. It brings plenty of charm to borders and woodlawn gardens, and since it can grow up to 10' tall, it's perfect for screening and privacy.
