SKU: ds651489 Categories: ,

New Mexico Olive is a rare desert tree that has spectacular fall color. Turning bright yellow in the fall, this small tree will stand out in your yard. Since it is not a true Olive, the tree is approved to plant locally in Clark County, Nevada. New Mexico Olive blooms in the early spring with small yellow flowers that is a great source of nectar. Only female plants will produce the dark blue fruits in late summer.  Also known as the elbow tree because it will send out branches at unusual angles to create a very unique showy form. Deep watering is recommended for the summer months. New Mexico Olive can be planted anywhere in the Las Vegas area including the colder outlying areas to the north.
