Wilsonii olive trees are a famous and easy-to-grow tree that provides year-round shade. The grand splendor of the scenery is a superb complement to a variety of different views. This cultivar, which produces no fruit, is descended from the Manzanillo. Once grown, it is drought tolerant and fire and disease-resistant. Multiple-trunked trees provide a dramatic effect and highlight the beauty of this olive tree variety. As a result of its resilience and adaptation, this tree may survive for hundreds of years. The Wilsonii olive tree is a non-fruiting specimen and will not produce the mess of olives without generating the pollen that aggravates many people with allergies.
Wilsonii olive trees are exceedingly versatile and thrive in ordinary well-drained, slightly alkaline soils. Just water profoundly and often over the first few growing seasons to help the plant build a strong root system. Once established, lessen the frequency of application; it is drought tolerant. Yet, protect young or freshly transplanted plants from winter weather extremes.
