Elaeagnus umbellata

Autumn Elaeagnus, Autumn Olive, Thorny Elaeagnus

Trouble-free and fast-growing when young, these rugged, evergreen and deciduous shrubs thrive in heat, aridity, wind and poor soils. Waxy olive-green to gray leaves form dense shrubs that make an excellent screen or hedge. An excellent coastal windbreak. Types with variegated foliage are available. Inconspicuous, fragrant flowers develop into berry-like fruits. Some species have 2- to 3-inch long thorns. Prune to control size and to promote dense growth. Start by cuttings.
