Bucida buceras thrives in zones 10b-11 (26-32 degrees). Basically from central Florida down to the southwest and southeastern areas of the state.
Used as a spectacular focal point this tree will provide optimal shade. A healthy mature Shady Lady/Black Olive will reach max heights of 40’-50’, so consider the tree’s maturity before planting.
Possessing a high salt tolerance makes this tree popular near the coast as well as inland. Neither salt in the air or salt spray will harm this gentle, sturdy tree.
She is hardy and loves the hours of sunlight provided by the Florida climate but is not a native. Its' origin is Central America and the Western Carribbean.
