Perfume for the Garden

Why Fragrant Tea Olive Trees?

An unforgettable fragrance merges with slow but steady growth, making the Tea Olive Tree a must-have. Because the Fragrant Tea Olive grows slowly, this dense evergreen plant can be pruned into a hedge or shrub, providing an effective and decorative screen.

Gleaming green leaves serve as the perfect backdrop to white blooms that will emerge both late in the fall and early in the spring. And when they do, get ready for the sweet, memorable scent that has made the Tea Olive Tree a favorite among landscape designers the world over.

Reminiscent of gardenia and jasmine, your Tea Olive will thrill each season as it delivers a unique and memorable fragrance in your garden and beyond. With a scent so whimsical and wonderful, you’d think the Tea Olive would be a handful when it comes to care.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Before planting your Tea Olive in the ground, moisten the roots and set it in the shade for a few days. When you’re ready to plant, place your Fragrant Tea Olive tree in full sun to partial shade, avoiding deep shade (4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily). Although clay, loam and sandy soil can accommodate your tree, try to choose a location with well-draining, slightly acidic soil.

 Dig a hole about as deep as the root ball and about twice as wide. Set the tree in the hole, spreading out the roots over the surface of the hole. Fill the hole in with a mixture of the original soil and any additional topsoil required. Eliminate any air pockets that may have formed by tamping down firmly. Water the area until the top 3 inches of soil becomes moist but not soaked.

2. Watering: Water regularly in the first year after planting. Wait until the top 3 inches of soil dry out before watering again. Soon after the first year, your Tea Olive will become drought tolerant and only need water during extended droughts.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a complete fertilizer in early spring such as 10-10-10, preferably one with slow-release nitrogen and follow the directions on the packaging.
