Dwarf Sizing and Deep Green Leaves for California
Why Dwarf Olive Trees?
Deep green tones meet silvery pops on a dwarf silhouette, making this Olive Tree second to none. Even better? It’s specifically tailored for California growth, so dry, arid conditions and heat are no match for the Dwarf Olive Tree.
Especially because it’s drought tolerant after it’s established. This non-fruiting variety will flourish in your Golden State landscape, whether it’s used as an attractive formal hedge or specimen in your front yard. Plus, it looks great in topiary form, trained as a single tree in tighter spaces and beyond. It merges good looks with amazing strength since it’s also tolerant of salt and coastal locales.

Planting & Care
When you’re ready to plant your Dwarf Olive Tree, dig a hole that’s about one and a half to two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place the tree in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. If you’re container planting your Dwarf Olive, simply select a container that’s twice the size of the tree’s root ball and follow in-ground instructions from there. Containers should also have drainage holes.
2. Watering: Once established, your Dwarf Olive is drought tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water about once weekly or more often in extreme heat and check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry 2 or 3 inches down, it’s time to water your plant. Reduce watering frequency once your plant is established but continue to water container-planted Dwarf Olives regularly.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Dwarf Olive with a general-purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in the spring.
4. Pruning: Remove any old or damaged foliage, or damaged branching, and prune your tree during winter.
