Elaeagnus x ebbingei


Gilt Edge Elaeagnus

The leaves of this Elaeagnus hybrid are striped gold-green, and the stems are spineless. This shrub has small white flowers which appear in Autumn, and are followed by red berries.


The red, winter berries can be used to make jellies.


Elaeagnus species generally frow well in a dryish position, such as against a wall or as a boundary planting. They will grow in most average soils, and do best in an open, dryish position. Propagate by semi hardwood cuttings or by layering in Spring.
