Elaeagnus x ebbingei

Commonly known as Ebbinge’s silverberry or oleaster, is a hybrid plant that belongs to the Elaeagnaceae family. It is a popular ornamental shrub grown for its attractive foliage and tolerance to a variety of growing conditions. Here are some key features and information about Elaeagnus x ebbingei:

Appearance: Ebbinge’s silverberry is a dense, evergreen shrub that typically grows 8 to 10 feet (2.4 to 3 meters) tall and wide, though it can sometimes reach larger sizes. It has silvery-gray leaves that are elliptical in shape and have a wavy margin. The leaves are often speckled with tiny brownish scales, giving them a unique appearance.

Fragrant Flowers: In the fall, Ebbinge’s silverberry produces small, inconspicuous flowers that have a sweet fragrance. These flowers are usually pale yellow or creamy white and are followed by small, reddish-brown fruit. While the fruit is not usually considered edible for humans, it can attract birds.

Tolerance: One of the notable characteristics of Ebbinge’s silverberry is its adaptability to a wide range of soil types and growing conditions. It can tolerate poor soils, drought, and salt spray, making it suitable for coastal areas. This hardiness and versatility make it a popular choice for hedges, windbreaks, or as an ornamental plant in gardens and landscapes.

Maintenance: Ebbinge’s silverberry is relatively low-maintenance. It requires minimal pruning and can be shaped to form a dense hedge. It can also be used as a specimen plant or included in mixed borders for added interest.

Use: Often used as a hedge, windbreak, specimen plant, or in mixed borders in gardens and landscapes.

Propagation: This shrub can be propagated through semi-hardwood cuttings taken in late summer to early autumn. The cuttings can be rooted in a well-draining medium.
