Elaeagnus Limelight (Russian olive)

Elaeagnus ebbingei Limelight - It has ovate, up to 10 cm long, leathery but thin leaves that are bright yellow in the middle and deep green at margins. The area between the centres and margins is light, soft green so the overall effect is 3-coloured. Newly emerging leaves and twigs are silvery-beige. Apart from the foliage this plant is also interesting for its almost invisible flowers. They are tiny and appear from late summer to early autumn and are hard to see unless you look up close. But you can definitely smell them. They have a lovely, sweet fragrance, especially in the evening. They are followed by fruit in spring. 1,5cm long, oval fruit is deep red and taste like dark cherries. Family: Elaeagnaceae
