(Green olive tree)
Family Oleaceae
Originating from S. Europe, N. Africa

A dense, evergreen shrub or small tree with rich, dark green leaves, that shine in sunlight. Left to its own devices it makes a splendid, lumpy, architectural tree - like giant broccoli. With a little pruning it can be quite easily topiarized or cloud pruned. Cultivated in the UK since the 16th Century, this lovely tree is hardy and reasonably fast growing but for some reason inexplicably uncommon.
Grow in well-drained soil in sun.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 6m
Spread 6m
