Tea Olive Bush

I live in Georgia. Should I deadhead my tea olives and will they continue to bloom throughout the summer? They are very established plants. Thank you so much for your help!

Dead heading the plant will help in continued blooming.
Blooming period should be June through October.

Tea Olive Shrubs

I live borderline in Zone 8 and 9 in NC. My tea olives do not look healthy this year. We had some very cold weather for approx 2 weeks straight and I thought this might be the reason. They are 5 years old and have never looked dull and dry at this time of year. What could my problem be?

This could definitely be due to the excessive cold weather. After it warms up some, you can take off any dead growth and the plant will, then, make new growth.

Here is an article for the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/osmanthus/tea-olive-cultivation.htm
