Olive ‘Bambalina’ – 250MM

(Not currently available to be ordered)

I am Olive Bambalina. My family originated from the Mediterranean

Botanic Name: Olea europaea ‘Bambalina’(PBR)

Tree –

I am a dwarf hedging olive tree with a very compact habit and dense small leaved silver/grey foliage.

Producing little to no fruit, I am prized for my ornamental form.

Unpruned I will grow to around 3 metres (about 25% of the size of most olive trees) but responding well to frequent pruning, I am an ideal choice for topiary, bonsai and espalier and easily maintained at around 1.5m.

Adaptable I am a great choice for a large pot or tub.

Like most olives I am a tough plant an ideal choice for exposed locations and coastal conditions. I tolerate frost and dry conditions well.
