Elaeagnus are sturdy evergreen shrubs particularly useful for coastal and exposed sites. They are a large genus of flowering plants, predominantly native to Asia. They are often sought after for their distinctive leaves, which appear silvery and scaled to the eye. Flowers develop on the plant in the autumn, and small fruits in the winter. The mildly perfumed flowers are fairly non-descript, but the winter foliage is prized by flower arrangers.
Elaeagnus plants are deciduous or evergreen shrubs, and are ideal for garden hedges. The attractive leaves, scented flowers and colourful berries make them an eye catching, wildlife-friendly border to a property.
Elaeagnus can be planted in full sun or partial shade and are tolerant of most well-drained soil varieties, including chalk and clay. They are also also very tolerant of dry soils and coastal winds, which is why they are one of the most popular hedging varieties for seaside properties.
