Answer: If you like the look of a topiary, which to me looks like a small tree, you might consider Little Ollie dwarf Olive. Without pruning, it grows 4-6' tall and wide, but you can prune it into a smaller shrub, or you can purchase Little Ollie in tree form (3' long trunk, 2' wide topknot). This plant has all the attributes of an olive tree without the messy fruit. I think it's perfect for your Mediterranean setting!
