Today’s 30 second plant tip of the day is on: Gilt Edge Silverberry Elaeagnus
Splendid golden-yellow margins on foliage year-round. Superb hedge or low screen tolerates heat, wind and requires little maintenance. Silvery flowers are tiny but fragrant; red fall fruit. Evergreen.
With its brilliant coloring, this plant is a bright specimen in partially shaded gardens in need of excitement. Also good against darker backgrounds and for welcome color late in the year when flowering plants are through. A great way to interrupt long runs of dull foliage. Use sparingly when interplanting with other yellow, yellow-green or gray-green plants.
