Compact, dense, evergreen shrub which makes an excellent hedge if not exposed to strong north or east winds. Pointed, finely toothed small leaves are dark and shiny above, lighter underneath. In early to mid-spring it will produce masses of clusters of dainty, 1.5cm (0.6ins) long tubular, white flowers which fill the air with their delicious fragrance and attract bees and other pollinating insects. These are followed by blue-black fruit up to 1.5cm (0.6ins) long which provide good food for birds in winter. Any fertile well drained soil. Sun or partial shade.

HEDGE Trim after flowering. For hedges 1.2 - 1.8m (4 - 6ft). Plant 60cm (2ft) apart.

SHRUB 1.8-3 x 1.8-3m (6-10 x 6-10ft).

Pot Grown Plants

These are normally sold in small 9cm wide pots, unless a different pot size is shown (where the pot size is shown in litres). Pot grown plants can be planted at any time of the year.

Availability

Pot Grown are generally available all year.

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.

Planting Distances for planting as a Hedge

We recommend planting Osmanthus Burkwoodii in a single row 60cm/2ft apart.

To calculate the number of plants needed for a length of hedging, click on Planting Distance Calculator above.

Planting Guide & RootGrow

We recommend planting with RootGrow. The recommended amount for RootGrow for an order will be shown in your shopping basket.

We will send out a planting guide with your order, you also can find a guide to planting here.

Pruning

Hedging - As a general rule, plants grown for hedging need pruning to encourage side branching. Usually the harder a plant is pruned the bushier it will be. If they are not pruned there is a danger that the hedges will be thin and bare at the base and that the tips of the plants will die back. If the plant is naturally bushy, less or sometimes no pruning will be needed to achieve a dense hedge.

Osmanthus Burkwoodii: Prune any straggly or untidy shoots, otherwise no immediate pruning is required.
