Elaeagnus x submacrophylla 'Viveleg' is a vigorous, dense, vase-shaped, upright, evergreen shrub with oval, leathery, variegated foliage - grayish dark-green leaves with silvery undersides and irregular golden-yellow margins. Small, fragrant, tubular, creamy-white flowers bloom in autumn and are followed by cherry-like, edible fruits. Elaeagnus x submacrophylla 'Viveleg' can grow in almost any type of soil, but it prefers average, moist, and well-drained soils, in full sun to partial shade. It can withstand frost, but its shallow roots need to be protected with mulch. It doesn’t like wet conditions. It is tolerant of dry conditions and coastal winds. Fast growing and vigorous. Almost maintenance-free. May become chlorotic on shallow chalky soils. Elaeagnus x submacrophylla 'Viveleg' is a nice, variegated variety of Silverberry. It is perfect as a background plant, for hedges and screens, in shrub borders, or for banks and slopes. Great for informal, cottage, coastal, and wildlife gardens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
