Elaeagnus x ebbingei is a very hardy, salt tolerant evergreen shrub. It is very easy to grown. The foliage is dark green with a silvery underside. In September-October, it produces fragrant, creamy flowers. These are followed by orange speckled silver fruit late into the winter. Elaeagnus x ebbingei will tolerate partial shade and dry conditions. In addition, it is wise to avoid chalk and wet areas. It can tolerate sheltered or exposed conditions. This makes it an ideal consideration for a coastal plant for a windbreak. It has an eventual height of 2.5-4m and a spread of 2.5-4m.
