osmanthus or sweet olive-- Osmanthus x fortunei ‘Fruitlandii’

Osmanthus blooms attract pollinators with their fragrance too! Pictured Osmanthus x fortunei ‘Fruitlandii’


It’s hard to believe such a small, delicate flower can have such a heavenly fragrance. You’ll find the Osmanthus  in the Asian Valley or just across the Lotus Bridge between Bloemendaal House and the Children’s Garden, or you can just follow your nose!
