Looking for a hardy and adaptable plant that can thrive in any soil? Look no further than Forestiera neomexicana, the Desert Olive, New Mexican Privet, or Wild Olive. This versatile plant can tolerate dry sites and requires a sun-drenched spot with well-drained soil. While its fruits may only be 4-8 mm long, they have been suggested as a substitute for true olives. Flowers bloom in axils of the previous year's leaves, but the plant may not fruit well in Britain due to a lack of sunshine. With its many benefits and easy care, Forestiera neomexicana is a great choice for any garden.
