It is unusual that the Oleaster hedge produces bell-shaped flowers in autumn, and berries in spring, as we would expect them to appear in reverse order, but this only adds distinct interest to the plant. With this, the leaves are a rich, dark green with little silver specks and silver undersides, which can look remarkable when the wind begins to blow. Being an evergreen, this plant is sure to be the one to light up your space all year round, as well as giving you a little bit of wildlife interest to the garden.
The Elaeagnus x ebbingei is relatively fast growing, at roughly 30-50cm per year. Though it is fast growing, however, it is rather easy to maintain, meaning you have a stunning and dense hedge that will not give you too much trouble over the years.
