A stable, sturdy appearance makes this shrub ideal as a hedge or foundational planting in landscape beds.

Plant Olive Martini™ Elaeagnus in well-drained soil and water regularly until established. Fertilize annually in the early spring, and prune as needed to retain the desired shape.

    new plant in my yard

    Posted by Mary M on Oct 5th 2017

    Saw this at a friends house and wanted one for my yard. Came in great condition besides the soil being a little dry. Now I just have to wait a few years so mine is as big as my friends!

    I wanted to create a silver looking hedge for some privacy in my backyard and to create a good background color for other plants. Hopefully this works out. Haven't received the plant yet, so I can't review that part yet.
