(Thorny Olive)

Thorny olive is a large evergreen shrub to small tree native to China and Japan where it exists along open slopes and thickets near the oceanside or waterways. It has also become naturalized in the southeastern United States where it is considered a problematic invasive shrub. It is fast-growing, tough and grows well in difficult areas but has a coarse, informal look that is visually unappealing.

The oblong to elliptical leaves of thorny olive are dark green on the top and silver-gray on the...

(Thorny Olive)

This large-leaved form of thorny olive has beautiful leaves marked with yellow central blotches. Reportedly, plants have a tendency to revert and maintain unvariegated leaves of yellow-green. Though still fast-growing, fully variegated forms tend to grow a bit slower than wild-type.

(Autumn Olive)

Though native to China, Korea and Japan, autumn olive has become naturalized across all of eastern North America since its initial introduction in 1830. The silvery red berries of this large deciduous shrub are produced in profusion and eaten and spread by birds and other wildlife. Tough and fast-growing, the autumn olive was once favored as a roadside shrub because it creates fast cover and fixes atmospheric nitrogen into the soil. It has since fallen into disfavor because it is a proven invasive...

(Ebbing's Silverberry)

Ebbing’s silverberry is a large, fast-growing shrub that is believed to be a hybrid between Elaeagnus pungens and E. macrophylla. In the northernmost parts of its hardiness it is semi-evergreen but in regions with warmers winters it is fully evergreen. There are many cultivated varieties to choose from and all are tough, thriving in poor, droughty soils, and relatively fast-growing. This is a more cold-sensitive species that does not thrive in zones colder than 7.

(Ebbing's Silverberry, Gilt Edge Silverberry)

Ebbing’s silverberry ‘Gilt Edge’ is a tough, fast-growing, large shrub of hybrid origin. It has interesting elliptical leaves, scruffy to the tough and eye, dark green in the center with striking, irregular yellow margins. Elaeagnus tends to grow rapidly with long branches - a semi-climbing habit. The branches are thornless. The extremely fragrant, tiny white to silver flowers are bell-shaped with spreading lobes and are produced in the fall and winter at the joint between leaves and branches in...

(Georgiaplume, Southern Plume)

Even though the Georgiaplume has smooth gray to lustrous brown bark, this deciduous shrub remains rather mundane until it bears upright white flower spikes in summer. Native to isolated pockets in the coastal plain of southeastern Georgia in the American Southeast, this shrub is endangered. Healthy plants are upright and bushy, suckering from roots to form small colonies. Seed is rarely produced. It was first cultivated in early American gardens around 1813. Scientists believe that fire helps seeds...
