In forum: Identify a plant

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"


Hope that helps? Cheers, Nicola

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

Good morning Paul. Can you post a few photos? Please reply to yourself or me with up to 3 images. It will help others to identify what is going on and the likely culprit...

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?

Is this the hedge for me?

Question from Jim Doar

In forum: Elaeagnus x ebbingei

I'm looking for a dense, vigorous, fully evergreen hedge to provide year round privacy. A portion of my garden is already hedged with Beech which is abou 8' high, but extending that would take too long to establish.
I want something less boring and less greedy of the soil than Privet but I don't like varigated foliage. I'm thinking of the plain evergreen Elaeagnus X ebbingei which I thought would look good with its flashing leaves extending the existing beech hedge. The soil is well drained medium alkaline in sun with some light shade. Is this the species for me and what precisely should I be asking for when ordering?

Colour of new shoots

Question from Michael Chard

In forum: Elaeagnus x ebbingei

I bought an Elaeagnus x ebbingei 'Gilt Edge' a couple of months ago and notice that new shoots are a dull green colour. Does the Gilt Edge come with time or should it be present on the new shoots straight away?
