Among Boething Treeland Farms’ most popular trees, our ‘Wilsonii’ olive is a Mediterranean native seemingly tailor-made for California landscapes where water is precious and heat is expected. This evergreen olive is not like other ‘Wilsonii’ varieties in the industry and is distinguished by its very low fruiting custom. Topping out at about 25 feet tall and wide, it has a lovely open form that appeals to landscape architects and contractors seeking a less densely foliated olive. As with all olives, the gray/green narrow leaves and bumpy trunk offers fantastic character and individuality to each specimen. Olea europaea ‘Wilsonii’ enjoys full sun, low water, and placement in Sunset Garden zones 8, 9, 11-24, H1 and H2. Quality specimens are available at Boething Treeland Farms in 15 gallons, 24”, 36” and 48” box sizes.
