Fragrant Tea Olive Osmanthus fragrans: This is the most fragrant species of a.



Jul 04, Heavy pruning to reduce the size or to tree form your Tea Olive should be performed in late winter, while the plant is dormant. Selective Pruning Of Ligustrum Use a sharp pair of bypass hand pruners to selectively remove stray or damaged branches. Make your cut at a point along the branch just above the main form of the plant. Feb 06, Because of its natural columnar shape, tea olive requires only minimal pruning, though gardeners may choose to prune the plant in order to encourage branching.

Plants may grow up to 8 feet wide and reach 4 to 30 feet in height depending on the cultivar, but they can also be pruned into a small tree if space is limited.



It is a self-pollinator, meaning it can use its own pollin to fertilize and produce fruit, but having other cultivars nearby seems to help.



Trim back branch tips in late winter or early spring to shape the tea olive shrub. Make the pruning cut 1/4 inch above a lower pair of leaves, dormant buds or branch twig junction. Where branch tips encroach on a building facade, fence or other garden plant, trim the branch back farther so regrowth doesn't quickly put the branch right back into the wall or nearby plant.

This spring pruning is all I ever do each year on a Tea Olive. That being said, you can lightly prune the canopy (top of the tree) any time during the growing season to keep a more formal shape, though I would cease pruning about two months or so before the first frost date in your area.



It grows in either sun or part shade.



Sep 21, Fragrant tea olive, or sweet olive (Osmanthus fragrans), can bloom off and on nearly year-round, so time pruning to follow peak bloom, which is fall through early winter in most cases. Tea olives generally develop a strong, treelike structure with branches off one to three trunks without much help, so it's fine to skip an annual pruning if your plant is lush and a suitable size.
