Here is where I will deposit all of the research I collect about my favorite trees, plants, shrubs, flowers, and when and where to plant them!

Yay for the internet community!! Through Pinterest interaction, I have found out the name of yet another favorite flowering tree - the Tea Olive! This one is in the yard of the house I just moved into this past summer, and in late September, it bloomed with the most fragrant flowers I have yet to discover on a relatively small tree. The blooms are small and white, and it blooms sporadically all summer; here in the South, it will even bloom during warm snaps over the winter. It does well in most soils, and most sun/shade situations, so it is a very low-maintenance tree. It is an evergreen, with dark green glossy leaves.
