Elaeagnus pungens 'Fruitlandii' - Fruitland Silverberry


Elaeagnus pungens 'Fruitlandii' - Fruitland Silverberry (Elaeagnus pungens 'Fruitlandii' - Fruitland Silverberry)

Fruitland Silverberry is my new favorite shrub. It has the most sweetly fragrant flowers. It reminded me of Gardenia, Jasmine mixed together. Photo taken at Cuyamuca College Botanical Garden on Nov. 26, 2010.

It was absolutely intoxicating! I don't remember ever seeing this shrub growing here before. It is supposedly really hardy too. So many of my GoY friends in the UK should be able to grow this plant very well. Most of the plants I post won't grow in the UK or other colder countries outside.

Yes, I've read it's one tough shrub! It's pretty amazing it will take cold down to 0F/-18C and heat to 110F/43C with no problems.

The hybrid of this: E. x ebbingei, also has beautifully scented flowers, but they are usually hidden down the stems. Displayed like this, they are fantastic. It stands the cold very well, also and makes a good windbreak by the sea.
