Wild Olive (also known as Devilwood or American Olive) is a large native evergreen shrub with an open rounded habit.  The elliptical glossy dark green foliage with lightly waved margins and a rusty underside turn gold or yellow in fall.  Fragrant clusters of creamy white urn-shaped flowers bloom in early spring and are followed by dark blue drupes that ripen in fall.  Best planted in part sun with acidic rich and moist well-drained soils.  Drought tolerant once established. 

Syn. with Cartrema americana.
