An elegant evergreen plant, Phillyrea latifolia is an olive-like native to the Mediterranean region and Western Asia. It is unusual in the United Kingdom and has masses of small, glossy, dark green leaves.
In spring Phillyrea has clusters of small, white flowers which are followed by tiny, back-blue fruit although in the United Kingdom it will only fruit after an exceptionally warm summer.
An interesting evergreen plant which a good substitute for areas where a Quercus ilex (The Evergreen Oak) would grow to large.
