new wild olive

This is a wild olive, Olea europea, which was collected by Denis Firic in Croatia a year ago. He brought it to the tree critique and workshop in Kastel in March 2010. There he worked on it and finally it found it's way into my car. At home I edited it a little and repotted it with Pawel Piekarczyk from Poland. It went into a great pot by John Pitt which seemed ton have been made for it. The wild variety has very small round leaves and is much better than what is usually offered. Very rarely if ever can one find a specimen piece of material like this one.
I am very happy and see a great future for this tree.
