Flowering Period

Elaeagnus is one of the toughest shrubs you can grow – coping with sun or heavy shade and a wide range of difficult soils including heavy clays. Its tough constitution makes it ideal as a foundation shrub or hedge, where it provides lush, evergreen foliage, structure, and sweet scent. Elaeagnus ebbingei ‘Compacta’ is denser and more compact than other varieties with leathery, lance-shaped, dark glossy green leaves with a silvery sheen. The underside of the foliage has a white, dusty coating. In autumn, it bears very small white flowers that have a surprisingly potent fragrance for their size. Elaegnus is drought-tolerant, coping with poor dry soils, exposed sites and coastal positions. Height: 2.5m (8.2ft). Spread: 2m (6.5ft).

Growing Information

Grow Elaeagnus shrubs in any type of soil, as long as it is well-drained. Although plants can be a little discoloured on chalky soils. Elaeagnus can tolerate an exposed, coastal position, or very dry soil, and is very hardy.

Live Plants

Suttons strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries

Unfortunately like many companies in our industry we are currently only able to supply orders to UK based customers, excluding those in Northern Ireland. We are committed to finding a way that we can resume or normal services again as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.

Very Large items

If ordering any large items marked large lorry items  a surcharge of £5 per item will be applied. These items are also not available to areas and postcodes shown under non standard deliveries. We may need to contact you regarding delivery so please provide a contact number with all orders.

Prices include VAT where applicable.

We reserve the right to contact you and advise an additional charge where necessary and are happy to quote for carriage of specific products to more remote areas. Some items may not be available to all areas.

We reserve the right to revise any carriage charges in the event of carrier price increase or other unforeseen circumstances. We will always advise of the carriage charge before payment is taken.
