The green foliage of the Silverberry Ebbingei hedge plant, also known as the Elaeagnus 'ebbingei' bears small silver spots and silvery-white undersides, creating a unique silver-green shimmering effect. These hedges produce highly scented flowers in the autumn to perfume your garden air and orange berries in the spring, giving unusual seasonal interest as the flowers and berries normally appear in the reverse order. These unique plants are ideal shrubs for pots and will make the perfect addition to any garden.

Ideally Eleagnus should be trimmed in late summer after flowering if you are forming a hedge. Simply trim out or cut back any diseased, longer or unruly shoots to ensure you get a nice dense hedge.

Pruning in late summer will strip out the short spurs which bear fruit. If you wish to harvest the fruit or leave for the wildlife, then pruning should be conducted in mid-spring through April and May.
