Elaeagnus ebbingei Hedge Plants Description

Unusually, Elaeagnus ebbingei (Oleaster) produces subtly fragrant white flowers in autumn and small orange fruits in spring. The leaves are dark green with silver speckles and silver coloured undersides, which look stunning where the wind will blow the leaves to expose the undersides. Elaeagnus ebbingei is quite fast growing at approximately 30-50cm per annum and should be clipped to shape in autumn.

Hedges Direct has a variety of hedging with berries and hedging with flowers species available if you are looking to encourage wildlife interest to your hedgerow.

As a sturdy evergreen shrub, Oleaster is ideal for shady, dry, seaside or windy sites but not cold, wet or very alkaline locations. Even so, we classify Elaeagnus ebbingei as being an excellent hedging plant for exposed sites. For similar hedging with variagated foliage, try Oleaster 'Limelight' with yellow patterning in the centre of it's leaves, or Oleaster 'Gilt Edge' which has bright yellow edges to the leaves.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge.

As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Oleaster should be trimmed in late summer after flowering if you are forming a hedge. Simply trim out or cut back any diseased, longer or unruly shoots to retain the shaping. In addition, remove any plain green leaved shoots when they appear and cut back to where they emerge from the plant.

Pruning in late summer will however strip out the short spurs which bear fruit. If you wish to harvest the fruit or leave for the wildlife, then pruning should be conducted in mid-spring through April and May.
