Cultivar Profile

Majestic Beauty Olive Tree

Olea europaea ‘Monher’

The Majestic Beauty olive tree is an attractive cultivar, with a refined appearance to the upright, open crown of this superior evergreen patio or garden tree that does not produce messy mature fruit. Its gray-green leaves are narrow and long, giving it an airy appearance. It thrives in hot, dry regions.

This is an elegant but tough tree for the hot, sunny garden. With no fruit to drop, it can be used near walkways, drives or pools, or within the garden without any mess. It’s a wonderful addition to a Mediterranean style garden with heat loving cypress, fruit trees, grapevines and roses. Take advantage of its versatility by mixing it with bold-leaved yucca, cordyline, phormium or agave, and a variety of tender succulents of alongside a modern architecture home or office. Majestic Beauty has an upright growth habit and an open, airy canopy that is ideal for parking lots and pedestrian areas.
