What is a Tea Olive?

The leaves range from being in focus and far out of focus. There is not a clear distinction between them so it's not clear what the "subject" is that is being separated.

I dont think that this shot quite pulls it off. Maybe if the leaves on the left were more out of focus the main leaves would have stood out more.
