Olea europaea / Olive tree

Olea europaea / Olive tree

Olea europaea is the botanical name for the European Olive. This small to medium sized evergreen tree makes for a fantastic screening tree or stand alone specimen. It has grey-green leathery leaves. These help to form a consistently densely headed tree. They are easy to maintain as a shaped tree or just “left to do its own thing”. Olea europaea produces small white flowers in the summer. It should be planted in full sun, facing south in a sheltered position. We stock these tree as small topiaries for keeping in pots, as standard or half standard trees.
