The olive tree, oil europaea, is an attractive, slow-growing perennial plant of Mediterranean origin. 

It forms a rounded head of small grey-green leaves and is tolerant of hot, dry conditions. Small creamy white flowers appear in summer, followed by small round green olives that ripen to black.


In the Mediterranean, olive trees are widely cultivated for their fruit. In colder locations, they are not fully hardy and need a warm, sheltered location to thrive. 

Alternatively, grow olive trees in large pots and move them to the shelter of a cool greenhouse during the winter months.


Olea has no reported toxic effects.
