Description How to Grow Delivery

This compact buckthorn reaches only 2 to 3 metres and is ideal as a coastal hedging plant, tolerating drought, exposure, salt-spray and poor soils.

Hippophae rhamnoides ‘Julia’ forms a bushy, deciduous shrub, clothed in silvery-green willow-like leaves followed by insignificant clusters of greenish, nectar-rich flowers which are attractive to pollinators. ‘Julia’ is slightly less thorny than the native species. It makes a useful shelter belt plant that offers both privacy and protection. Alternatively use it as a solitary specimen in a mixed border where its profuse clusters of large, orange-red berries put on a showy display in September and persist through winter. The sour berries are edible and packed with vitamin C. This female variety requires pollination from a male plant to set fruit. Height and spread: 2-3m (6.5-9.8ft).

Height Up to 2m (6.5ft)
Spread Up to 2m (6.5ft)
