November Plant of the Month
Elaeagnus could have a prettier name, but don't overlook this underutilized plant. This fast growing evergreen makes a great privacy screen. It has an upright spreading shape with silvery green foliage. It makes a small interesting looking fragrant bloom, followed by an edible fruit! It's also super tough, holding up against poor soil, heat and drought. Keep Elaeagnus happy by planting in full or part sun.
