Elaeagnus ‘Quicksilver’
at Digging Dog

Russian Olive


Elaeagnus ‘Quicksilver’ full sun

Aptly named, this topnotch undemanding shrub quickly composes an upright, multistemmed silvery frame well-suited for hedging or screening. The dapper deciduous leaves—long, slender and alternate—manifest tiny bronze dots, which reflect sunlight, and create a splendid sparkle, while small cream-colored flowers tucked into leaf axils exude a sweet fragrance.

Originating in England as a chance hybrid seedling first identified by celebrated British plantsman Roy Lancaster, the ever-acquiescent ‘Quicksilver’ dresses the garden with luminous accents and withstands wind, drought and most soils.

Size: 8' 0" high x 4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I have often ordered by mail or online, and I must say that your plants far exceed the size and quality of most of the other nurseries with whom I have dealt.  You can be sure that I will be a frequent customer in the future.”
