Name that Osmanthus

essex, England

hello me again, does anyone reconise, or can name this Osmanthus for me please, another one of my Wilko's £1.50 bargains...thank you.



Hi Majee I have the Heterophyllus and the Delavayi and I think this one of yours is the Variegatus creamy white edged leaves which flowers in September-October. It does not mention that it has holly like leaves though The Heterophyllus certainly has holly like leaves but mine are more yellow edged than white. Hope it is of some help.

Hi Majee. I still have the label on mine - Osm. Tricolor.It certainly looks the same. Speckled, holly type leaves- green, gold and silver. Its doing well.

thanks both of you, I do know this is an Osmanthus, just the variety i am stuck on, so 'Tricolour' sounds good, thanks Hillyc

I still think it's O. heterophyllus 'Goshiki', probably - when it grows up!
