 Bucida buceras, Terminalia buceras
Family: Combretaceae
Florida Black Olive Tree, Shady Lady, Oxhorn Bucida, Gregory Wood
Origin: Florida
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This tree is a widely used tree in South Florida. It is claimed to be native to the upper Florida Keys, but that is disputed. Very dense, full, oval to rounded crown with age. Sometimes the top of the crown will flatten with age, and the tree grows horizontally. Does best in rich, moist, well-drained soil - although can be grown in almost any type soil. Flowers are small, off-white, odd smelling when in bloom - very attractive to bees, produced in four-inch-long spikes during spring and summer. It does not produce edible olives, only small, hard, seed capsules. Florida Black Olive makes a wonderful and very large shade tree. Attractive to birds for nesting and cover, shade and specimen tree - give plenty of room to grow. Does well in sea-side locations, heavy branches very wind tolerant.
