Grow: The Osmanthus flowering plant is fairly common around the world. It has beautiful white flowers that release a heavenly scent, commonly compared to the Jasmine scent. An interesting legend has been told about the Osmanthus. During a terrible plague, a sky fairy took seeds from the Osmanthus plant on the moon and scattered it throughout the world. The gorgeous flowers began to bloom, then were made into wine & tea which helped cure this terrible plague. To bad its just a legend, this year could use a miracle like this one.
