This dense evergreen shrub with upright growth has spineless branches densely dressed with silver-scaled green foliage. The stems and new growth are accentuated by brown scales. Very small, intensely fragrant flowers open in the Fall and are followed by small red berries. Stays evergreen in mild winter climates and will tolerate all but extremely soggy soils. It is as happy in full sun as it is in deep shade making it an all-around great choice for many landscape applications. Elaeagnus make an excellent hedge, foundation shrub or small accent tree!
