Product Description

Eleagnus ebbingei variegated, commonly known as Variegated Oleaster, is an ornamental shrub known for its distinctive foliage and robustness. Here is a detailed description and some cultivation tips:

Description

  1. Foliage: The variegated variety of Eleagnus ebbingei features leaves that are typically edged or splashed with creamy white or yellow, contrasting beautifully with the darker green center. This variegation can vary between plants.

  2. Size: It's a medium to large shrub, often reaching heights and spreads of 6-10 feet (about 2-3 meters).

  3. Flowers and Fruits: The shrub produces small, inconspicuous silver-white flowers in the fall, which are often fragrant. These can be followed by small orange-red berries that are popular with birds.

  4. Growth Habit: It has a dense, bushy growth habit, making it suitable for hedges or as a standalone specimen.

Cultivation Tips

  1. Light: Prefers full sun to partial shade. Variegated varieties may require more light to maintain their unique leaf coloring.

  2. Soil: Adaptable to a wide range of soil types but prefers well-drained soil. Tolerant of both dry and moist conditions, but not waterlogged soils.

  3. Watering: Regular watering is important, especially during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, it's relatively drought-tolerant.

  4. Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring to maintain shape and size. This plant tolerates heavy pruning well.

  5. Fertilization: Fertilize with a general-purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.

  6. Pests and Diseases: Generally pest-resistant, but can occasionally suffer from scale insects or fungal diseases. Proper care and maintenance usually prevent most problems.

  7. Climate Tolerance: It is quite hardy, tolerating cold down to USDA Zone 6. It can also handle coastal conditions and salt spray, making it suitable for seaside gardens.

Eleagnus ebbingei variegated is valued for its robust nature, attractive foliage, and ability to thrive in a variety of conditions, making it a popular choice for gardeners seeking a low-maintenance yet visually striking shrub.
