Spring fragrance flower in the garden design

Osmanthus burkwoodii feels most comfortable in a well-drained soil rich in nutrients and humus. Also, the shrub prefers a sunny to semi-shaded location, ideally protected from icy winds. In general, the spring fragrant flower is an extremely robust plant that is hardly susceptible to pests and diseases. This makes it one of the easier to care for plants in the garden.

Due to the growth height of three meters and a growth width of one meter, it is suitable in smaller gardens on the one hand, on the other hand it can be used as a hedge privacy screen.

The shape of the plant is customizable to meet any desire. As a slow-growing plant, it retains the desired shape after pruning. Especially since it also makes a first-class impression in containers, with its glossy and dark green leaves.
