Features

notes
The sophisticated appearance of this striking Standard Olea leccino means that it is highly versatile: perfect for statement planting in an urban courtyard, punctuating the formality of a parterre, or accentuating a vista. Being able to tolerate cold, it is better suited to the English climate than other varieties.
Insights

Traced back to mediaeval Tuscany, Olea europaea leccino is one of the primary olive cultivars, traditionally grown in groves for the production of oil. Purple/black olives develop from inconspicuous white flowers, but should you be hoping for an olive crop, you would need to plant companion trees since it is not self-pollinating.
