Botanical Name: Olea europaea
Common Names: common olive, olive oil plant
With its light, sage-colored foliage, this ancient plant will make a beautiful statement in modern interiors, and will be sure to bring a touch of the mediterranean to your home. The olive tree can thrive both indoors, as well as outside when the warmer weather arrives.
The olive tree measures between 20-35" in height, including its plastic pot.
Although olive trees make for beautiful houseplants, they do naturally tend to drop some leaves. However, leaf drop can also be caused by lack of light, too much water or too little water. If your olive tree is dropping leaves more than usual, don’t panic - it can be fixed in most cases.
