Russian Olive

Elaeagnus

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:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
