Wilsonii Olive Trees

Wilsonii olive trees are popular and easy-to-grow trees that provide year-round shade. The grand splendor of the tree is a superb complement to a variety of different landscapes. This cultivar, which does not produce fruit, is descended from the Manzanillo. Once established, it is drought-tolerant and resistant to fire and disease. Multiple-trunked trees provide a dramatic effect and highlight the beauty of this olive tree variety. Due to its resilience and adaptability, this tree may survive for hundreds of years. The Wilsonii olive tree is a non-fruiting specimen and will not create the mess of olives nor generate the pollen that aggravates many people with allergies.

Care and Maintenance

Wilsonii olive trees are exceedingly versatile and thrive in ordinary, well-drained, slightly alkaline soils. Water deeply and frequently during the first few growing seasons to help the plant build a strong root system. Once established, reduce the frequency of watering, as it is drought-tolerant. However, protect young or freshly transplanted plants from extreme winter weather.
