Offer peace in your home with the olive, the Ancient Greek's traditional symbol of harmony, wisdom and triumph. Native to the Mediterranean, the Olive tree is a slow-growing evergreen, and becomes attractively gnarled with age. Features grey-green leaves and fragrant, creamy white flowers that give way to delicious green olives, ripening to black.
Care: Best grown in slightly sandy soil with good drainage in a sunny location. Fertilize monthly and water moderately during the growing season, sparingly in Winter.
