Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime' is an evergreen shrub with fragrant white flowers in spring with small slightly spiny green leaves. Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime' has a very compact growth habit.  The first time I saw Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime' my impression was that it would be very dwarf and excellent in a trough garden.  A few years later I was at Plant Delights Nursery and saw Tony's 7-8' tall plant - guess I was wrong about the size!  Even when it gets larger, it maintains a very compact appearance and can EASILY be pruned much smaller.  I cut my plants HARD every 2 years (down to 8"-12" stumps) in late winter and Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime' quickly recovers to make a 2-3' shrub.  Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime' makes a great mass planting, could be used as a slow growing, low hedge, or fine alone.  Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Kaori Hime' has small fragrant, white flowers in spring and occasionally a few throughout the growing season.  Fragrance is not as intense as Osmanthus fragrans but will still perfume your garden!
