Elaeagnus x ebbingei compacta

Compact form of this frost, salt and wind hardy evergreen with silver leaves and fragrant little white flowers in autumn. Tremendously reliable plant.

Any position, any soil. Perfect by the seaside but hardy almost anywhere. It flowers on old wood so fragrance is unaffectied by clipping. ‘Shrubs from cuttings, from Italy’.

N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.

As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
