Elaeagnus pungens 'Maculata'

from 8.00
Variegated Elaeagnus
An easy to grow drought tolerant evergreen shrub with showy variegation, blending multiple shades of green and yellow throughout leaf. Can grow 5’ or more, can be grown in the full sun or part, but grows tighter in hot sun. Any soil, tolerates abuse well. I love this plant, and it was hard to find for a long time. It was grown by my mentor Sinjen, so it has always has a special place in my heart. 'Gilt Edge' is the more commonly available selection, but I like the multi-hued variegation of this one better. They both grow about the same size and share the same habit. It can be a little gangly when young, but prunes well and can be trained to grow in many situations. Great on a hillside, or even espaliered on a hot wall.
