Generalities of the Phillyrea Angustifolia plant:

Phillyrea Angustifolia, also commonly called Ilatro, is an evergreen shrub, of medium size, which spontaneously lives on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea; its cultivation is widespread throughout Italy, and a couple of species of the shrub are present in the spontaneous flora of almost all regions, including in Lombardy and Veneto. The size of an adult plant is quite large, and the older shrubs can reach 4-5 meters in height, with occasional growth up to 6-7 meters. It is a shrub of the same family as the olive tree, the oleaceae, with which it shares many of the cultivation needs, and some aesthetic similarity. Phillyrea Angustifolia has evergreen, leathery, oval-shaped, dark green, shiny leaves; in spring the entire foliage is filled with small white flowers, which bloom at the leaf axil, gathered in small racemes; the flowers are followed by fruits: small, round, black or purple drupes, vaguely reminiscent of olives. In Italy only two species are widespread, Phillyree angustifolia, and Phillyrea broadleaf, which differ only in the different size of the foliage. Phillyrea Angustifolia are used as ornamental shrubs, in the ground or in pots, and also very often as bonsai, because the plant reacts very well to pruning; in particular they have been used in recent years to form maxi garden bonsai, as the foliage is particularly versatile

Phillyrea Angustifolia Plant Cultivation and Care:

These plants are not unlike the olive tree, they need to be planted in a sunny area; they tolerate frosts very well, even intense ones, although it is advisable to place them in an area of ​​the garden not subject to strong winter winds, especially in areas of Italy where minimum winter temperatures can drop below zero for a long time. Although they tolerate the cold very well, in some Italian regions they are cultivated in pots, in order to be able to cover them easily, or move them, in case of snow or very intense and persistent frosts; damage caused by frost is generally more likely when the plant is kept in very humid soil. For this reason, the Phylliree are buried in a very well drained substrate, so that, especially in winter, the plant sinks its roots in a loose soil without stagnant water. Before planting a Phillyrea it is therefore advisable to work the soil well, lightening it with sand or pumice stone, in order to make it very well drained. The plants, especially if they have been planted for a long time, tend to tolerate drought well, even during the hot months; however, if we have one of these shrubs in the garden, it is advisable to water it, especially in summer, when the soil is dry, from March to September; during the cold season they do not need watering. If we live in an area with very severe winters, and we have moved our plant to a cold greenhouse, it is advisable to water sporadically, even in winter, in order to avoid leaving the plant in a completely dry soil, even when the temperatures in the greenhouse are high. So in general it is a low maintenance garden shrub, which tolerates frost and winter cold well, as well as summer heat and drought; it is grown more or less like the olive tree, and therefore needs protection only in areas with very harsh or very humid winters
