Sea Buckthorn hedge plants are a popular native species which has unusual silvery grey foliage as well as strong thorns and masses of colourful orange berries. It is ideal for planting in coastal sites but does just as well inland.
For maximum berry production, Hippophae rhamnoides does best in a sunny site, but it will still do well in partial shade. Sea Buckthorn's berries are edible and high in vitamin C, however they do have a purgative effect - so take care!
An ideal hedge for the coast, it works well as a windbreak or for screening purposes. Sea Buckthorn also looks great in a mixed native hedge.
