The evergreen tree Olea europaea has lustrous grey-green to dark-green leaves. It produces clusters of small fragrant white blooms that are followed by green or purple olives. In the spring, little white flowers bloom; the warmer the environment, the earlier the flower buds appear. It will eventually reach a height of 6 meters and a spread of 3 meters. Correggiola prefers full sun to partial shade in well-drained soil. Use as a specimen tree or in big pots.
