Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Sasaba'
Holly Osmanthus 'Sasaba'
Evergreen shrub with small leaves whose sharp marginal and terminal spines point in all directions. Dirr says: A plant handler's worst nightmare with deeply cut, incised, sharp, spiny, stiff, lustrous dark green leaves..." This uncommon Japanese clone will probably produce the same fragrant white flowers as the species. Plant in well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Holly Osmanthus is native to Japan.
