Hinton Ampner Garden

Elaeagnus 'Quicksilver'


The Terrace and Temple Garden.


A fast-growing hardy shrub up to 4m (H 4m x S 4m) that has beautiful silvery leaves and very sweetly scented flowers in summer.

Site and Care:

Its tolerant nature means that it is a good plant for many difficult situations, including areas that are blasted by coastal winds and places with dry soil. Prefers moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. It will suffer if planted in shallow, chalky soils but seems happy here on our well mulched chalk based soil.
