Elaeagnus x ebbingei 'Gilt Edge'
|Description||A splendid combination of golden yellow margins on bright green foliage provides wonderful year-round interest in the landscape. A superb hedge or low screen that tolerates heat and wind, and requires little maintenance. Tiny, fragrant, silvery flowers in fall are followed by red ornamental berries. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 4 to 5 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||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.|
|Companion Plants||Euonymus (Euonymus); Coneflower (Echinacea); Coral Bells (Heuchera); Loropetalum (Loropetalum); Barberry (Berberis)|
|Care||Thrives in light, loamy or sandy, well-drained soil with full to part sun, but tolerates a range of conditions including dry shade and poor soil; avoid soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune annually to shape.|
