Brightly coloured evergreen foliage and scented flowers in autumn
Superbly tough shrub which copes with difficult locations
Ideal foundation shrub or hedging plant
The striking gold foliage of Elaeagnus pungens ‘Maculata’ makes it a popular evergreen shrub for brightening shady corners. The leathery, lance-shaped leaves are variegated bright yellow in the centre with a wide, irregular, dark green margin. 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. 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).
