Description
 
ELAEAGNUS- Elaeagnus pungens Zone: 7

ELAEAGNUS, Silverthorn, or Thorny Elaeagnus(but has no thorns) is native to China and Japan.
Thorny elaeagnus is fast growing, easy to care for and tolerant of a wide variety of conditions.
Grows well in part to full sun. Water when dry for best growth, but silverthorn is able to withstand drought even in light sandy soil. Constantly wet, soggy soil will kill. Silverthorn responds well to pruning and makes an excellent evergreen hedge and barrier. It is often planted along highways and is useful in controlling soil erosion. This adaptable plant is tolerant of salt spray and so is a good choice for coastal locations. The sweet fragrance of the flowers, reminiscent of gardenia, will delight in the autumn and winter garden (it reminds me of the perfume the old ladies wore to church when I was a kid). Silverthorn is very easy to grow and is bothered by few pests. USDA Zones 7-9.


Plants are shipped out on Mondays,Tuesdays,Wednesdays, and Saturdays... I take great care in wrapping plants to assure they arrive safely, but sometimes the Post Office gets careless and damages the package. I only ship plants to lower 48 states, Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Protectorates, and APO/FPO address no international shipping at this time, but am working on same on a country by country basis! If there are any certificates, special regulations for your state, or special shipping costs above and beyond what normally occurs in my regular shipping to the lower 48 states...buyer is responsible to tell me and pay any additional costs incurred..
