The Silverberry, scientifically known as Elaeagnus Commutata, is a stunning and versatile shrub that is sure to elevate the beauty of your landscape. This hardy perennial boasts a unique combination of features that make it an excellent addition to any garden or outdoor space.


These shrubs prefer moist soil while establishing. When established, Elaeagnus are very drought tolerant plants. Only during prolonged periods of summer drought will plants require supplemental irrigation. Silverberry bushes need full sun to light shade.


Typical Uses:

The Silverberry is a multifunctional plant, offering a range of uses for both residential and commercial settings. Its graceful, silvery foliage, fragrant blossoms, and striking berries make it a superb choice for ornamental purposes. It serves as an attractive backdrop to other flowering plants and can be used as a stand-alone specimen in a mixed border. Additionally, Silverberry is highly valued for its ability to fix nitrogen in the soil, making it a natural fertilizer for nearby plants and enhancing soil health.


Establishment and Care Instructions:

  • Planting: Choose a sunny to partially shaded location with well-draining soil. Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. Place the Silverberry in the hole and backfill with soil, ensuring it’s firmly packed. Water thoroughly.
  • Watering: Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a strong root system. Once established, Silverberry is drought-tolerant and requires minimal watering.
  • Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring to shape and rejuvenate the shrub. Remove dead or diseased branches to maintain its health and appearance.
  • Fertilizing: Silverberry generally doesn’t require additional fertilization, thanks to its nitrogen-fixing abilities. However, a light application of balanced fertilizer in early spring can benefit growth and flowering.
  • Pest and Disease: Silverberry is resistant to many common pests and diseases, which makes it a low-maintenance choice for your garden.
