Elaeagnus x ebbingei
Elaeagnus is a popular choice due to its large grey-green leaves which have a silverly-white underside. In contrast to other evergreen trees, elaeagnus produces flowers in autumn and orange berries during spring, providing unusual seasonal interest. Similar to Grisilenia, Elaeagnus is often chosen for coastal gardens due to its tolerance of dry soils and coastal winds.
