Elaeagnus ebingeii. Compacta instant trough hedging in an instant. No wait required.
This is an evergreen species with beautiful silvery grey leaves which produces small, aromatic flowers. You'll love their strong, sweet fragrance. Guaranteed to make a big impact and remarkable point of interest in any outdoor space.
Elaeagnus eb. Compacta will create a perfect natural screen in any outdoor area. This species is salt and wind tolerant and will survive in exposed areas, so ideal for coastal locations and balconies. It will grow in a medium quality soil, however the best foliage colour is achieved in light sandy soils. This makes them great for hedges and shelter belts, particularly in drier areas.
It also copes well in highly polluted areas, even trapping fine air dust to improving the air quality.
Its small, white, aromatic flowers, will provide a wealth of nectar and pollen for a wide range of bees and other pollinators. The flowers will then become charming red berries hued with a silvery glow aptly nicknamed "silver berry", safe for humans to eat (perfect for making jam!) and great for wildlife. They will also produce a dense foliage which will provide a welcoming home for nesting birds.
In this way, Elaeagnus ebbingei green screens, with all its wildlife-boosting elements, can contribute to increasing biodiversity in your outdoor space.
Elaeagnus eb. Comacta will require regular pruning to maintain its shape and density.
While it is normal to see the green and yellow variegated form grown in gardens this form of Elaeagnus stays true to its type keeping this lovely foliage colour and is an impressive evergreen hedge.
