Elaeagnus pungens Maculata

Elaeagnus pungens  Maculata
Elaeagnus pungens Maculata
Japan. It is the foliage of this selection that catches the eye first. The four inch long, leathery leaves are glossy. They have golden yellow centers outlined dramatically in dark and light green. This pattern is variable with green streaks in the yellow and the margins varying in width. The undersides of the leaves are ghostly in appearance due to a layer of fine white hairs. Attractive reddish stems complement the foliage. An ideal candidate for adding to moss animal topiaries. There are thorn like structures at many of the leaf axils but they have never hurt us. The big surprise is the waxy flowers which are hidden in the foliage. When they open, they perfume the air with sweetness. You must be out in the garden in the autumn to enjoy them. At our own nursery, we grow this mid sized evergreen shrub on a fairly dry hillside which is open to the sun most of the day. It has thrived there and makes a lovely backdrop to its neighboring plants. Seasonality is Autumn. Measurements are around 8 feet x 8 feet Colors are White flowers Hardiness Zones: 7, 8, 9
Price: $21.00
