Often referred to as Silverberry. We have found that in our searing heat during Summer (45℃ +) many plants struggle. Elaeagnus pungens is not one of them. We have pruned our plants into 1m x 1m spheres and in another area as a 1m x 0.5m hedge. The golden bronze new growth has a stunning effect, particularly when plants have been shaped. Very tough and hardy (-5℃ to 45℃) with no supplementary watering. Produces edible berries in Autumn and Winter which contain Omega 3 and Lycopene (reputedly a cancer fighting agent). Elaeagnus harbours nitrogen fixing organisms so is able to grow in poor soils.
