Elaeagnus x ebbingei is usually simply known as Elaeagnus. It has large leathery green leaves with a silvery underside, is evergreen and produces small highly scented flowers in late autumn. Elaeagnus grows relatively quickly and is ideal for making a hedge of any size between four and six feet in height and although it is used extensively for planting inland, it is often planted in coastal situations due to its tolerance of salt and strong winds which is why it is commonly planted along the south coast overlooking the sea often on quite poor soil. We usually stock different sizes of Elaeagnus all year round. Scroll down for more information on Elaeagnus hedging.
