I am Olive Tolley’s Upright. My family originated from the Mediterranean

Botanic Name: Olea europaea ‘Tolley’s Upright’

Tree – Low fruiting variety

I am the right Olive tree for people wanting an ornamental Olive that does not set much fruit.

I have an elegant upright form with a compact and symmetrical structure. I am long lived but fairly slow growing compared to other varieties.

I am the perfect olive for hedging and screening. I prune and hedge well but develop good form unpruned.

Incredibly hardy I am a great choice for challenging locations. I will thrive planted in coastal conditions, where strong winds prevail, in dry and impoverished soils and other locations where most plants will struggle.

Adaptable I will perform well container planted in a large pot or tub.

I do best in full sun but will cope with significant shade.
