Design Ideas: A small olive with all the Mediterranean look and feel without the size or the fruit. Shrub forms produce beautiful single plants, or line them up into a natural or sheared hedge. Particularly useful along driveways and street side where reflected heat from paving and vehicles would wither less heat hardy species. Trained as patio trees they make outstanding potted specimens, a pair flanking a classical sculpture or an Italian style wall fountain is hard to beat. In ground these patio trees are ideal in vine pockets and along walkways where staccato repeats create bold a semi-formal style.

Thrives in average to lean, well-drained soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Reduce frequency once established in the landscape; continue to water container plants regularly. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.

History

A symbol of peace and prosperity, the olive has a long history in the western world, beginning with the ancient Greeks, who named their city Athens after the goddess Athena gave them the olive tree.
