Hi Robert, some helpful suggestions from our followers on social media:

"???Elaeagnus???"
"Looks like a willow to me. Salix caprea I think..."
"Pretty sure that's willow"

Hope that helps?

Help me identify this pretty shrub

Question from Hilshils

In forum: Identify a plant

This small tree needs some care and attention, but I don’t know what it is. Plant id apps say it is a Elaeagnus or a spindle tree, thinking the pinky red flowers are fruits! So it is in flower now, May, and has been for a month.
Thank you

Hi Peter, one suggestion already in from our social media

"Looks like Christmas Box shrub, Sarcococca confusa to me."

"The flower is wrong for Sarcococca confusa on looking at it again."

" Eleagnus ebbingei"

"Actually it’s an elaeagnus x ebbingei"

"Daphne?"

Hope that helps? Cheers, Nicola

I've discovered, months later, what it is. It's not a holly but an oleaster or Elaeagnus i.e. a 'silverberry'. The 'dust' which appears on the leaves and the rust-coloured spots seem to be normal. :)

I'd like to say Elaeagnus, the Russian olive, but the no thorns is a mystery..

Can anyone identify this shrub

Comment from Identify a plant

In forum: Identify a plant

it has evergreen, waxy and slightly wavy, almost serrated leaves that are alternate on red stems with a light coloured under leaf. The plant in the picture is a good 2.5 m high and was planted in shady garden, it also has a tight cluster of flowers which are out now - early June - have a look at the photo and get back me if you have an idea

I thought it may be an elaeagnus but I cant find a match

Re: Leaves falling off

Message from Gremlin

In forum: Photinia x fraseri 'Little Red Robin'

Hi Roy,
I bet you're really pleased you waited. I once transplanted an Elaeagnus in very early spring, it looked dead for the whole of the year. The following spring it burst into life.
If your Cotinus is too big, or straggly it can be hard pruned next year, just before the leaf buds open. If you want to keep it smart and don't want the flowers you can keep it trimmed at anytime. I prefer to use secateurs but a hedge cutter can be used. I have the job of keeping one of my client's Cotinus as a hedge and I prune it every 4-6 weeks to keep it tidy, consequently it is very compact shrub but it never flowers.

Time to prune?

Message from Gremlin

In forum: Elaeagnus pungens 'Maculata'

Evergreens should, generally speaking, be pruned during periods of growth, i.e. from the beginning of May in UK. Elaeagnus is very hardy and will probably be ok pruned in spring, but I would wait until early summer. Pruning can continue until September - after this soft new growth can be killed by frosts.

You're brilliant! Thank you so much. Yes it is evergreen and after searching I found mine to be indeed an Elaeagnus! The closest match I can find is Elaeagnus pungens 'Fruitlandii'. It seems very hardy. I'm so pleased, I've had it a few years now and was very curious what it could be. Thank you :)

Is it evergreen? could it be an elaegnus? they bloom with tiny fragrant flowers in October and do fruit. Look for Elaeagnus multiflora, this one blooms in April, but fits your description better, it is deciduous, take a look at the family.

Re: Re: Unknown evergreen shrub - assistance required

Message from Bill Bussone

In forum: Identify a plant

Wow, thanks guys! It certainly seems to be some form of Elaeagnus, although beyond 'not a variegated one', I'm not sure which specific species or cultivar. Umbellata is a nuisance in my area, so it may well be that.

Now I have some concept of how to prune it.

From the photo I think its Elaeagnus x ebbingei 'Coastal Gold' or something very similar.
Hope this helps,

Have added some photos. Leaves are being eaten and have a whitish powder on them. Also looks like new leaves have not formed properly and shrivelled unless it produces some autumn flowers? thanks

Elaeagnus x ebbingei 'Viveleg' laves being eaten

Question from PAUL

In forum: Elaeagnus x ebbingei 'Viveleg'

Planted this around one month ago, and although evidence of growth, quite alot of the leaves are being eaten. No obvious evidence of bugs on it. How should i treat this?
