Product Overview

Commonly known as Ebbing's Silverberry, Elaeagnus features leathery, elliptical leaves that emerge silver before maturing to a lustrous dark green with silvery-gray undersides. Clusters of fragrant, bell-shaped flowers open on its delicate branches in late fall, followed by small orange-red fruits in spring. Elaeagnus adapts to a wide variety of soils and stands up to salt, wind, and pests. Ideal for planting as a hedge, windbreak, privacy screen, or barrier, it adapts well to pruning and makes an excellent choice for mixed borders and foundations.

  • Best grown in USDA hardiness zones 7-9
  • Mature size is 8 ft. to 10 ft. tall and wide
  • Small creamy white flowers open in late Fall with reddish-brown fruits ripening in Spring

Nice plants that are doing well, we are hoping that in a year or two we will have a nice privacy hedge. I did not pay attention to the size but that’s on me.
