Special Attributes

Fast growing, fragrant flowers, colorful foliage - what more can we ask for in a hedge shrub? Meet Olive Martini Elaeganus; the perfect shrub for a super-dense, impenetrable privacy hedge or barrier. Leathery evergreen leaves of olive green bordered with a creamy golden-yellow highlight Olive Martini when used as a hedge or as a specimen plant. Orange-brown twigs contrast nicely with the leaves and deepen in color as colder weather sets in in the fall.  
 
Apart from the colorful foliage, this plant is also interesting for its almost invisible but very fragrant flowers. They are tiny and appear from late summer to early autumn. They have a lovely, sweet perfume that is distributed especially on sunny and warm afternoons and evenings. The flowers are followed by edible, deep red oval fruits that taste like sweet dark cherries. It is best to let the fruits ripen well, which is when they begin to fall from the plant.

Olive Martini was originally found by Christian Vivies in Toulouse, France, as a natural mutation of Elaeagnus x ebbingei.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a dense rounded mound 10 to 15 feet tall and wide (depending on pruning), the fast growing Olive Martini Elaeagnus is most useful to create quick privacy hedges and screens. You can allow it to grow natural or prune to a more formal shape. Also makes a nice specimen, grouping or background in large landscape beds. A fine addition to yellow theme gardens, fragrance gardens, and bird and wildlife gardens. 

Suggested Spacing:  6 to 7 feet apart for solid hedges; 16 feet apart 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. As with so many other shrubs it does not like a constantly soggy or wet soil, which can be problematic. Established plants are exceptionally drought tolerant. Elaeagnus prefers full to mostly sun however will tolerate a fair amount of shade. Foliage is more dense with more sun.
