Texas Olive is a semi-evergreen tree celebrated for its lush foliage and large, beautiful flowers. It's a popular choice in landscaping for its ornamental qualities and adaptability to a range of garden settings.

The most striking feature of the Texas Olive is its flowers. They are large, typically 2 to 3 inches in diameter, and resemble the flowers of true olive trees (though the two are not closely related). The blooms are white, often with a yellow center, and are known for attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The flowering season extends through the warmer months, providing a long-lasting display of color.

In addition to its flowers, the Texas Olive has attractive, broad, and leathery leaves that are dark green and provide a dense canopy. The tree's overall shape is rounded and compact, making it an excellent choice as a specimen tree, for small garden areas, or in patios and courtyards.

Texas Olive is a hardy tree, tolerating a range of soil types as long as they are well-draining. It's drought-tolerant once established, making it a suitable choice for water-wise gardens and xeriscaping. While it thrives best in full sun, it can tolerate some shade.

In terms of care, Texas Olive requires minimal maintenance. Occasional pruning can help maintain its shape and encourage more prolific flowering. The tree is also relatively resistant to pests and diseases.

Overall, Texas Olive is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for a small, ornamental tree that provides both aesthetic appeal and ecological benefits. Its striking flowers, lush foliage, and adaptability to different landscapes make it a valuable addition to a variety of garden styles.
