Plant in early Spring or early Fall. This tree enjoys warm locations and will tolerate humid environments, when planted in full sun. Olive trees do not do well in windy locations. The trees are evergreen, long-lived, beautiful ornamentals with soft, gray-green foliage. The Manzanillo tree can grow up to 30' outdoors in hot climates.
