Why We Love It

Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Tricolor' produces beautifully marbled leaves of cream and green. The spiky foliage of this evergreen plant is pink when newly sprouted creating contrast against older growth in the spring.

How to Plant

Osmanthus tends to prefer full sun or partial shade and will grow happily in any soil type as long as it's well-drained. It's a hardy shrub, so it will be fine in winter. You can expect repeat flowering in April and May.

Into the Ground

Have your spade, watering tool and soil or peat-free compost ready. Once you've chosen the spot to plant your Osmanthus, be it in a garden or as hedging, be sure to clear the area of weeds and other debris.

  1. Dig a hole that's twice the size of the plant's rootball.
  2. Pop your plant inside, backfilling as you hold it in place.
  3. Firm up the soil and then water thoroughly.
  4. Add more soil if needed.
Into a Pot

The Osmanthus will easily thrive in a pot or container, as long as there's ample space for it to grow. As a general rule, choose a pot that's at least twice the size of the one your plant came in. You'll also need a trowel, a watering can and some soil.

  1. Add moist soil to the bottom of your chosen pot.
  2. Place your plant inside, backfilling soil around the rootball.
  3. Firm up and water.
