Elaeagnus ‘Coral Silver’

Elaeagnaceae
Deciduous, Evergreen, Shrubs

ELAEAGNUS

All elaeagnus are splendid screen plants. They grow fast when young, becoming dense, full, firm, and tough—and they do it with little upkeep. All tolerate seashore conditions, heat, and wind. Foliage is distinguished in evergreen forms by silvery (sometimes brown) dots that cover leaves, reflecting sunlight to give plants a special sparkle. Deciduous kinds have silvery gray leaves. Small, insignificant, but usually fragrant flowers are followed by decorative fruit, usually red with silvery flecks. Evergreen kinds bloom in fall; in addition to their prime role as screen plants, they are useful as natural espaliers, clipped hedges, or high bank covers.

Elaeagnus ‘Coral Silver’

Evergreen in mild-winter climates, deciduous or partially deciduous elsewhere. Has unusually bright gray foliage, yellow flowers, coral red berries in autumn. Grows 5–10 ft. tall.
