Shimmering evergreen foliage and scented flowers in autumn
Superbly tough shrub which copes with difficult locations
Ideal foundation shrub or hedging plant
Elaeagnus is one of the toughest shrubs you can grow – coping with sun or heavy shade and a wide range of difficult soils including heavy clays. Its tough constitution makes it ideal as a foundation shrub or hedge, where it provides lush, evergreen foliage, structure, and sweet scent. Elaeagnus ebbingei ‘Compacta’ is denser and more compact than other varieties with leathery, lance-shaped, dark glossy green leaves with a silvery sheen. The underside of the foliage has a white, dusty coating. In autumn, it bears very small white flowers that have a surprisingly potent fragrance for their size. Elaegnus is drought-tolerant, coping with poor dry soils, exposed sites and coastal positions. Height: 2.5m (8.2ft). Spread: 2m (6.5ft).
Height Up to 250cm (98in)
Spread Up to 200cm (78in)
