Elaeagnus Ebbengii Gilt Edge
The leaves of ‘Gilt Edge’ burst with sharp contrast; dark green centers and brilliant gold margins! The new leaves are coated with silvery scales, remaining thick beneath the mature leaves, thinning to dots on upper leaf surfaces. In Fall, small, silver-scaly flowers hide in the branches, their presence revealed only by their exquisite fragrance.
Very adaptable, growing in full sun or part shade.
It is drought and relatively wildlife tolerant.
