Low Shrubs (to 4 feet high)

Evergreen and deciduous shrubs that generally stay below about 4 feet high without any pruning whatsoever or with only very minimal pruning. These plants are perfect where space is limited in the garden and landscape, as low hedges and accents, in front of or around larger shrubs and beneath trees and tree standards. Most of these small growing shrubs will make suitable long-lived low-maintenance medium-sized container specimens. Their smaller stature naturally lends many of these for use as Bonsai specimens.

Party Lights™ Holly Leaf Tea Olive, Osmanthus

Osmanthus heterophyllus ‘sPg-3-021' (a.k.a. O. heterophyllus 'Party Lights', O. heterophyllus 'Shien')

The bright deep pink flushes of holly-like new foliage and stems slowly matures to pastel pink, yellow, and ultimately a dark green. Party Lights™ Holly Leaf Tea Olive is one of the hardiest selections of Osmanthus and produces small white fragrant flowers in fall but it is mainly grown for its outstanding foliage color in the garden and landscape and has a nice dense well-branching habit that is sure to make a statement. This is a hardy evergreen shrub that will have the densest habit and brightest colors in full to mostly sunny conditions.

Party Princess™ Holly Leaf Tea Olive, Kaori Hime Holly Leaf Tea Olive, Osmanthus

Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime' (a.k.a. O. heterophyllus 'Party Princess')

Small clusters of sweetly fragrant white flowers are borne in the leaf axils in fall on this tiny delicate looking evergreen shrub. Kaori Hime Holly Leaf Tea Olive ( or recently appropriately named Party Princess™ Holly Leaf Tea Olive ) is delicate looking but should be a tough and easy to grow evergreen shrub with fine textured dark green holly-like foliage that maxes out at about 1/2" long and according to Ted Stephens, who found this Japanese cultivar and introduced it to the US, should have the best cold hardiness of all of the Osmanthus species, most likely zone 6 hardy like its larger leaved parent, Osmanthus heterophyllus. This is an obvious bonsai candidate but it can also be grown as a container plant as well as in the garden in landscape as a hedge or specimen plant. Expect this very dwarf Holly Leaf Tea Olive to have a naturally upright to vase shaped habit but it can be pruned into a low hedge if so desired. Provide a well-drained average moist soil for optimum health and flowering although it is fairly adaptable to soil types. Item# 11646
