Elaeagnus species (aka Silverberry)

 

 

This 10’ x 10’ sprawling evergreen shrub is definitely saved pruned to take care of measurement and form. It’s typically grown as a hedge or barrier.

Develop this massive shrub in full solar, half solar or mild shade. It requires common irrigation to determine however survives on weekly watering even within the sizzling summers.

 

 

 

 

Aromatic, creamy-white flowers seem within the fall and are adopted by small brownish-red edible fruit which ripens within the spring.

Elaeagnus is pretty deer resistant as soon as established however shield it when newly planted. It could possibly actually outgrow any deer looking after it’s established.

This robust shrub is winter hardy to 0°-10°F and drought proof against boot. Use in plantings for screening, however as I at all times say, group in odd numbers of three’s or 5’s and alternate species to keep away from whole losses when one thing goes incorrect!
