New Mexican Privet, Desert Olive
Deciduous, Shrubs, Trees
Native to New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona west to California. Little used outside arid regions. Grows 12 to 18 ft. tall, 12 ft. wide. Smooth, medium green leaves to 1 1/2 in. long turn yellow in fall. Inconspicuous flowers. Small (1/4-in.-long), egg-shaped fruits, blue-black when mature, are not always produced (some plants do not have both male and female flowers); when they do appear, they attract birds. Fairly fast growth makes it a good screen plant; can be trained as a small multitrunked tree.
