Olive Trees With Gnarled Trunks

Paramount Plants has specialised in Mediterranean plants for many years, indeed it was the original concept for our plant centre. So when it comes to Olive Trees, we know a thing or two about which specimens to choose, how to maintain these magnificent trees and how to present them in their very best light.

Gnarled Trunks – Olive Trees
It was circa 5 years ago that the ancient looking gnarled trunks of old, coppiced, olive trees started featuring on the show gardens of RHS Chelsea, since then demand for these iconic trees has grown exponentially. The beauty of their crusty old trunks with the silver grey foliage has charmed many and their vintage appearance gives a planting scheme that most desirable of attributes – longevity.

Olive Tree Sale Offer

An iconic tree for anyone familiar with the Mediterranean landscape and these are now becoming hugely popular as ornamental trees in the UK. Olive Trees are extremely hardy and are very drought tolerant, perfect for those areas of the garden that receive full sun without the need for extra watering in dry spells. The elegant silver grey leaves can be trained into lovely lollipop shapes which has increased their use in containers at either side of an entrance door.
