    Osmanthus x burkwoodii is a cross between O. delavayi and O. decorus. Delavayi is from China and decorus from Caucasus. No reason why you wouldn't be able to get this plant or something very similar. You will have to do some research with your nurseries. The issue is more likely to be "are these plants grown in this way?" The plant you see is grown, trained and pruned in a Belgian nursery but I have no idea how the nurseries in NZ are operating.

1. Multipurpose changes and levelsThere are several things you can do from a design perspective to expand the look and feel of a space. If, for example, you’re working with a long thin courtyard, I’d recommend breaking up the visuals leading out into the space so the entire space isn’t revealed as soon as you open the door. More and more property owners are achieving this by angling their decking or changing up their paving patterns to draw the eye to a different spot in their small garden spaces.

Now and ZenYou don’t have to own a Japanese-style house to have a Zen garden. Many modern garden designers have created their own twist on the Zen-like simplicity of Japanese gardens to enhance the minimalist architecture of contemporary homes, as evidenced in this London home. Here, beautiful timber and brick walls form a clean backdrop for the sculptural beauty of the cloud-pruned burkwood osmanthus (Osmanthus x burkwoodii) tree.Cloud pruning is a traditional Japanese technique known as niwaki, where minor growth is cut away from the trunk and branches leaving most of the foliage at the ends of branches. Like many Japanese gardens, the planting here is all green with hard landscaping materials used to add textural interest. Water is of course another key element.
