The Plants

Elaeagnus x ebbingei 80/100cm


Photo of Elaeagnus x ebbingei 80/100cm


A strong, fast-growing shrub with silvery grey/green foliage that form an inpenetrable screen. Elaeagnus ebbingei produces insignificant, tiny white flowers all through the summer and well into the autumn. Their size belies their incredible fragrance. Its tolerant nature means that it is a good plant for many difficult situations, including areas that are blasted by coastal winds and places with dry soil.
