Olea Europaea is the botanical name for the European Olive Tree, which are slow growing evergreen trees or shrubs that can get to hundreds of years old, and this first photo shows the tree within an oak panelled green crate within the Rose Garden of the Luxembourg Gardens.
And housed within the Orangery during the colder months to protect it from frost etc, this Olive Tree is brought outside from around May through to October for visitors to enjoy while they are in this free public garden and popular tourist attraction in Paris.
Yet here you can see a close showing the tourist information plaque fixed to the crate, which was Pot No 204, and as you can see, it states that the Olea Europaea is native to the Mediterranean Basin, although it can also be found in places such as Asia and Africa.
Now the Olive tree has been recognised for centuries and has long been considered sacred as a symbol of glory, peace, abundance, wisdom, power, etc, however most people recognise the tree for its fruit, which is widely cultivated in Mediterranean countries for the production of Olive Oil, with Spain, followed by Italy then Greece, producing the most yields each year.
