Native to the Caribbean and parts of Florida. Not the edible Olive we know and love, but does produce a small, black seed-capsule. An evergreen tree with a smooth trunk and a very dense, full oval canopy. The lush, dark bluish-green, leathery leaves can be over 2" long and clustered at branch tips, sometimes mixed with 1" long spines found along the branches. Loves the sun and heat. Do not expose to temps below 40F.
