Texas Olive

Cordia boissieri


Wild-Olive is a native North American evergreen tree which reaches 20 feet in height with a 10 to 15-foot spread. The silvery green leaves have a velvety texture and the showy, white flowers appear year-round, if enough rainfall or irrigation is available. Otherwise, the three-inch-wide, trumpet-shaped, white blossoms with yellow throats will appear from late spring to early summer. The olive-like, white fruits which are produced have a sweet flesh relished by birds and other wildlife and, although edible to man, should not be eaten in quantities.
