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, hedge or windbreak, where it provides lush, evergreen foliage, structure, and sweet scent. Elaeagnus ebbingei ‘Limelight’ is distinguished by its bright foliage which offers a colourful backdrop and is especially useful for illuminating shady areas. The leathery, lance-shaped leaves are variegated lime green and yellow in the centre with a green margin. In autumn, it bears very small white flowers which have a surprisingly potent fragrance for their size. Elaeagnus is drought-tolerant, coping with poor dry soils, exposed sites and coastal positions. The foliage is an excellent filler for flower arrangements. Growth rate: medium 20-40cm per year. Maximum height and spread: 4m (6.5ft).
