Russian Olive-Shrub Form

Elaeagnus angustifolia

Large, very hardy, fast growing shrub with striking silver foliage that provides great color contrast. Usually in tree form, also found in shrub or multistem shape. Scented, small, yellow spring blooms followed by silver berries. Requires well-drained soil; very high tolerance to salt, heat, and drought once established. Fertilize in spring with a good compost or all purpose fertilizer before new growth emerges. Prune as necessary while dormant: late winter/early spring is best; suckers and dead branches can be removed anytime.

Available in select potted and caliper sizes.
