Elaeagnus Ebbingei Hedging

Elaeagnus ebbingei Hedge (Oleaster)

Elaeagnus Ebbingei is a beautiful evergreen shrub, identified by their sea green and grey looking leaves, which have a silver scaly underside to them. They produce small fragrant white flowers during the Autumn months which are then followed by bright orange fruits in the Spring. These shrubs make great hedging plants with evergreen foliage that looks great in all seasons, they cover quickly and respond very well to trimming to make an attractive living screen.

Elaeagnus ebbingei Hedges are suited to normal garden situations and can also be planted in exposed sites, in particular, windy and coastal sites where they can flourish, but sadly they do not like cold conditions. They can be planted in either chalk, loam, clay or sand, so long as the soil is kept moist and well drained, although they can tolerate dry soils. Plus they adore sunlight, so are great for gardens with a lot of sun exposure.

In five to ten years Elaeagnus Ebbingeii hedges can reach their max height of four metres, and can spread in width anywhere between two and a half to four metres wide if left untrimmed. When it comes to pruning, it is best to cut back this hedge during the late spring. April to May is the most perfect time, once it has stopped developing its fruit. Elaeagnus hedges can be maintained at any height from 120-250cm tall and 50-100cm wide.

Elaeagnus Ebbingeii hedges are suited to heights of four to eight feet (1.2-2.4 metres), and we would recommend planting this hedge at a density of 2-4 plants per metre depending on the size of plant that you choose. For a superb border hedge, with added height and width, all round privacy, and a finish that’s pleasing to the eye, the Elaeagnus Ebbingeii is the hedge for your garden. This attractive evergreen shrub has grey green leaves with a scaly silver underside the small scented white flowers in autumn are followed by orange fruits in the spring. Suited to coastal, shaded and windy sites.
