The Olive Martini Elaeagnus from the Southern Living Plant Collection proves itself to be a reliably eye-catching evergreen all year long. Brilliant emerald green foliage edged with gold catches light strikingly, illuminating the landscape. This shrub performs beautifully as a backdrop, hedge, or specimen; providing a solid structure as well as constant magnificent color. New growth emerges with a silvery hue before maturing to the bright green and golden yellow characteristic of the Olive Martini. Plant this Elaeagnus in well-drained garden soil and fertilize yearly in early spring to keep this plant beaming for years to come.
For a formal hedge, plant your Olive Martini Elaeagnus 8 feet apart center to center. For space between this shrub consider planting it 10+ feet apart.

This is the first year I have ordered plants online. I am very impressed with the size of the plants I received and the very careful packaging.

Jim Putnams review of this plant caused me to purchase 2 of them…really should have had 3. I couldn’t believe how they came packaged…just perfect for their fast journey. Thank you Plants by Mail!

The plant looked great upon arrival, I can’t wait to plant in April. I would buy again.

The variegated leaves on this plant look hand-painted. It has a natural, wonderful shape to it. It’s an evergreen – so we get to enjoy it all year long. Very attractive!

The plants great! Have them planted for a natural fence. They sure do grow fast! I have some that have put on a good 6″ of growth that were planted in May.
