osmanthus variagatus

Variagated Chinese Holly. A variegated cultivar of the holly look-alike plant. Close examination will show the leaves of this plant to be held in pairs along the stalk, while those of the holly are alternate. The dense green leaves have a broad creamy margin and can make a substantial shrub, making it very effective in a shrub border. It is often grown as a hedge but the crop of white autumn flowers will be reduced due to clipping the hedge.

osmanthus burkwoodii

A rounded shrub with glossy, dark green leaves and clusters of very fragrant tubular white flowers from mid to late spring.
