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.
