Osmanthus x burkwoodii Hedge Plants Description

Osmanthus x burkwoodii like many white flowering plants, the fragrance carries a good distance, particularly in the evening so this is an ideal hedge to plant near the house/patio. If you trim the hedge after flowering, it will increase the flowering for the following year.

Osmanthus x burkwoodii is classified as fairly hardy but our experience is that it is just a bit tender and not really suitable for NE England/cold parts of Scotland. Please don't be too offput by our warnings on hardiness, it does really well and is a beautiful hedge in most of the UK. See all of our flowering species and fragrant hedging plants.

Osmanthus likes any soil type but must have moist soil and should not be exposed to strong north or east winds which can damage the leaves. Its leaves are finely toothed - but not prickly, its growth rate is average and it will grow (in good conditions) to approx 3m height but is easily kept at much lower heights.

Osmanthus x burkwoodii is a popular subsitute for Box hedging plants for its ability to be trimmed into a variety of shapes and it's insusceptible to Box blight. We have a section dedicate to Box hedging alternatives and blight for you to view our suggested choices.

Pot grown Osmanthus x burkwoodi plants are available all year round. Root Balls are available from late October to mid April.

Further Information
Further Information

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section. As a general rule, smaller pot plants can be planted up to 6 per metre if planted in a double staggered row. Larger pots will require less plants per metre. Really the planting density is down to how long you would wait to see a hedge with the required fullness. If you want to a fuller hedge in a shorter time, you would plant at the higher density per metre.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Osmanthus Burkwoodii is best pruned in late Winter or Early spring. Although slow growing it should be pruned yearly being sure to remove any dead branches.
