The Osmanthus aquafolium ball has leathery, deep green, glossy leaves with sharply serrated margins which is why non-professionals often think they are looking at a holly. The main differences are sweet olive has opposite leaves (hollies have alternate leaves), and sweet olive shrubs. At the end of autumn sweet olives bear tiny white flowers with pleasantly sweet fragrance.
This stunning specimen is 125 -150cm ball with beautiful foliage. A really stunning specimen tree for a pot or as a feature in a prominent spot.
