The Olive Martini Elaeagnus (Elaeagnus x ebbingei 'Viveleg') is an attractive, evergreen shrub known for its hardiness, adaptability, and year-round interest. This low-maintenance plant is a fantastic addition to a variety of landscapes, providing screening, hedging, or even serving as an eye-catching specimen plant.
Olive Martini Elaeagnus is a hybrid plant that thrives in USDA hardiness zones 6 to 9. It can grow 10 to 15 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet wide, making it suitable for use as a privacy screen or windbreak. The plant prefers well-draining soil and can tolerate a range of conditions, including poor soil, drought, and coastal environments. Its ability to fix nitrogen in the soil also makes it a valuable companion plant, promoting growth in nearby plants.
The Olive Martini Elaeagnus is admired for its striking foliage, which provides year-round interest in the garden. The leaves are elliptical and leathery, with a glossy dark green upper surface and silvery, almost metallic undersides. This contrast in color creates an eye-catching display, especially when the leaves shimmer in the wind. The evergreen nature of the plant also ensures that it provides a steady backdrop and maintains its form throughout the year.
Olive Martini Elaeagnus produces small, inconspicuous flowers in the fall that pack a fragrant punch. The flowers are creamy-white and tubular, hiding among the foliage. Despite their small size, their sweet fragrance is powerful and can fill the air around the plant, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies. Though the flowers themselves may not be the main visual attraction of the plant, their delightful scent adds another layer of interest to the garden during the fall season.
