Glen St. Mary Silverberry
Elaeagnus pungens 'Glen St. Mary'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones:  7a-9b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Elaeagnus variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Growing only half the size of its larger cousins, Glen St. Mary is a dwarf Elaeagnus cultivar that tops our at about 5 to 6 feet tall and wide. It forms a dense, rounded shrub with new leaves emerging with brown fur that stands out nicely against the silver-grey mature leaves. The undersides of the leaves are a metallic gold color. In fall, clusters of small white flowers produce a delightful sweet fragrance reminiscent of gardenia. Small reddish berries follow the flowers and are a favorite treat for birds. Excellent as a specimen or hedge shrub.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 5-6 feet tall and wide (depending on pruning), Glen St. Mart Elaeagnus is ideal for use to quickly form a natural or clipped formal hedge. It can be sheared regularly to maintain a dense, formal hedge, but we think it looks best left alone. Elaeagnus is a fine addition to bird and wildlife gardens. 

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedges; 10 feet or more for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Elaeagnus is very easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average to low fertility and full sun to part shade. When established, Elaeagnus is very drought tolerant. Foliage is more dense with more sun.
