Large upright shrub that can reach 20' tall and 6-8' wide, but is usually seen in landscapes 6'-10' high. The young plants need some shade, and will tolerate sun only after they mature. Small and inconspicuous white flowers in winter and early spring cover the shrub, then bloom sporadically throughout summer. The apricot-scented fragrance released is powerful and exquisite.

See Article about this plant. Osmanthus x fortunei is a hybrid of O. fragrans and O. heterophyllus.
