Elaeagnus ebbingei 'Limelight' Hedge Plants Description
Oleaster Limelight is quite fast growing at approx 30-45cm p.a. and should be trimmed to shape in Spring. This evergreen hedging plant performs best in partial shade or sun and is happy in dry soil, seaside gardens and exposed hedging sites. The leaves of Oleaster 'Limelight' have yellow patterning in the centre with a bright lime-green edge, hence their name. This is in contrast to Oleaster 'Gilt Edge' which has leaves which are green in the middle with a yellow or gilded edge. You can find other colourful and variegated leaves in our colourful hedging department.
Like all variants of Eleagnus x ebbingei, Oleaster 'Limelight' has creamy white flowers which appear in Autumn, followed by small orange berries which appear later in spring. We also have a variety of other species in both our hedging with berries and flowering hedging departments.
Youll 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 youre 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
Oleaster Limelight should be pruned in Late Summer using secateurs to trim back any long or misplaced shoots.
