Native to the Caribbean and parts of Florida. Not the edible Olive that we know and love, but does produce a small, black seed-capsule. An evergreen tree with a smooth trunk and has a very dense, full canopy. The lush, dark bluish/green, leathery leaves can be over 2" long and are clustered at branch tips, sometimes mixed with 1" long spines found along the branches. Naturally grows erratically in all directions forming a diamond-like lace. Loves the sun and heat. Do not expose to temperatures below 40F. Great for indoors.
