Olive Tree Shrubs (Olea Europaea Shrubs)
Latin Name Olea Europaea, these European native olive tree shrubs are evergreen with a nice bushy shape. Despite their Mediterranean allure, these are tough plants that are fully hardy for UK growing conditions.
Olive Trees will flower in summer and may sometimes go on to produce fruit in the autumn in warmer parts of the country and in less exposed areas.
These olive tree shrubs are the perfect shape and size for creating an evergreen olive hedge. Olives are very clipable and they are easy to maintain growing circa 20 cm per year.
Every Mediterranean-style garden should ideally contain olive trees. In addition to hedging, these Olive Tree Shrubs with their bushy shapes could be clipped into topiary style cones. These versatile Olive Tree shrubs look very good when planted in containers, especially in pairs on balconies and terraces. In fact, olive trees are renowned for doing well in containers. But don’t forget to water them however in dry periods.
As with all olives, they prefer a sunny sheltered spot, so it’s best to choose a south or west facing aspect when planting.
