Elaeagnus x ebbingei hedge plants

Oleaster hedging

From £6.99

Elaeagnus × ebbingei, or Elaeagnus × submacrophylla hedge plants are also known by their common name Oleaster and make for a delightful evergreen hedge. The green foliage of Elaeagnus × ebbingei hedge plants bears small silver spots and silvery-white undersides, creating a silver-green shimmering effect. Oleaster hedges produce highly scented flowers in the autumn and orange berries in the spring, giving unusual seasonal interest, as the flowers and berries normally appear in the reverse order.

  • Best Features: Silvery-green evergreen foliage, spring orange berries, wildlife-friendly, autumn flowers, year-round interest
  • Ideal For Hedges: 1m - 4m high
  • Growth Rate: Fast | 40-60cm a year
  • Position: Any normal or dry soil, full shade to sunny, coastal (very good at the coast) and inland exposure, avoid wet sites.
  • Also Consider: Portuguese Laurel for an evergreen hedge with a slightly different foliage colour to Elaeagnus × ebbingei, or take a look at our coastal hedging plants range for more inspiration.

Oleaster hedge (Elaeagnus × ebbingei hedge plants) description

A spectacular evergreen, Elaeagnus hedging is admired for its fragrant, bell-shaped, small white flowers. It grows orange berries which, unusually, are produced in the spring as opposed to the autumn, against bronze coloured stems. Oleaster hedges have wonderful grey or silvery-green foliage and make a marvellous garden hedge, providing year-round cover and interest to wildlife.

Best uses for Elaeagnus hedging

A useful coastal hedging plant, Oleaster is a hardy variety and will suit all but very cold and wet sites, growing best in a shady spot. An attractive bushy shrub, Elaeagnus × ebbingei makes a great windbreak, noise barrier and quick-growing screen, whilst providing seasonal interest.

Combine Elaeagnus × ebbingei hedge plants with

An Oleaster hedge looks fantastic when planted alone, although you can also compliment Elaeagnus × ebbingei with other shrubs for hedging to create a tapestry effect.

Growth rate of Elaeagnus × ebbingei hedging

Elaeagnus × ebbingei hedge plants are fast-growing and can achieve approximately 40-60cm per year. An Oleaster hedge is perfect for heights up to 4m.

Care advice for Oleaster hedges

Elaeagnus × ebbingei hedge plants are low maintenance and do not require any routine trimming. However, should you wish to shape your Oleaster hedge, this should be carried out in autumn and any diseased, damaged or dead shoots should be cut away in mid-spring.
