Question of the Week – Tea Olive

Posted by romeethredge on January 15, 2016

Last week I asked about a sweet smelling, blooming shrub. It’s the  Fragrant Tea Olive, Osmanthus fragrans.  They grow to 10 to 15 feet tall and a little pruning keeps them in shape. The best thing is the good smelling blooms that start in September and then they bloom sporadically through the winter. Ours are blooming now.


This week’s question is about a wildflower I found blooming in the sand dunes at Grayton Beach State Park in Florida near Destin last weekend. What is it?
