Bucida spinosa – Dwarf Black Olive (4″ pot)

$20.00

Though commonly called “Black Olive”, this tree does not produce any edible olives, but rather a small seed pod. Native to the Caribbean and the Florida Keys, this delicate tree grows into a Bonsai almost by itself! It is an evergreen tree, with a smooth gray – brown trunk, small compact foliage, and branches in horizontal layers.

Ships in 4″ plastic nursery pot. We DO NOT sell finished Bonsai trees. The Bonsai in the photos are an example on what you can do with the plant.
