This first HD photo shows an Olive Tree, which has a botanical name of Olea Europaea, and this is one of the many trees grown in these large green crates, that are housed within the Orangerie of the Jardin du Luxembourg during the colder months, and are brought out into the gardens between the months of May and September.
And this particular crate, made of oak was positioned within the Roserie, which is located opposite the Orangerie in the western side of the Luxembourg Gardens, next to the childrens sandpit.
Yet this next image shows a close up of the tourist information plaque affixed to the crate, and as you can see in the bottom right hand corner, this was Pot 201, and it provides the botanical name of Olea Europaea along with where this specimen originated from, which was the Mediterranean Basin.
Now most people have heard of Olive Trees, due to the fact that they are cultivated for olive oil and for table olives, and these can be found in most Mediterranean areas where the climate consists of rainy winters and hot dry summers, such as Spain, Italy, Greece, Portugal, etc, yet these trees can be found in other parts of the world that have a similar climate.
But this is why the olive trees have to be kept in specialised buildings like an orangerie in places such as France, hence this one is in a pot, as they do not fair very well in colder climates and frost can kill even a mature tree, yet with careful pruning and care, the Olea Europaea can reach many centuries of age, with some, such as one in the Algarve having been dated at over 2000 years old.
