It's the plant that's having a serious moment!! Featured on basically every interior design blog this year, her rise feels like a reaction to the fiddle leaf fig, which has dominated interior scapes for a decade.  Her delicate foliage and minimalist growth pattern somehow evoke both a zen monastery and white sand beaches in Greece. 

Outdoors the black olive tree can grow from hardiness zones 10B to 11, so coastal areas in dependably warmer sites are a must.  A black seed capsule gives this tree its name, but it should not be confused with the familiar edible olive – nothing edible here!  Growing up to thirty-feet tall, this evergreen tree is fairly wind-resistant and is known for its tiered, horizontal growing habit.  

Indoors this plant will require as much light as you can give it, so place it in your number one spot for your favorite plant!! A southern window is ideal. Water and fertilize regularly for best results. 

We absolutely cannot ship this plant so don't even ask.
