  • Elaeagnus 'Viveleg'

    Oleaster 'Viveleg'

    From £14.90

    Elaeagnus ‘Viveleg’ is an attractive variegated form of Oleaster with green and gold leaves and silvery undersides. It is fairly compact of habit, easy to grow and requires little maintenance to keep it looking its best. Tolerant of most weather conditions, locations and soil types, this hardy evergreen shrub is an excellent all-rounder and will add year-round seasonal interest and colour to the garden. Grows to around 2.5m height and spread.

    Elaeagnus x ebbingei ‘Viveleg’ or Oleaster ‘Viveleg’ is a new and colourful variety of Oleaster originating in France, featuring oval, variegated foliage, deep-green with a bright, golden-yellow margin. As with other Oleaster varieties the leathery leaves are paler and silvery-coloured underneath. In autumn, insignificant white but fragrant blooms can appear followed by small edible fruits.

    Elaeagnus ‘Viveleg’ is evergreen and bushy yet compact with an upright habit and will grow in most well-drained soil types but not overly wet. It prefers a sunny or partially shaded location and being tolerant of salt laden air, it will grow happily in coastal areas. It is hardy in the UK climate and will cope with severe or cold weather quite admirably making it an ideal shrub for more exposed locations.

    Elaeagnus ‘Viveleg’ needs little pruning to keep its compact shape well. It makes a lovely addition to large beds and shrub borders or as a specimen plant and its golden-edged leaves offer colour throughout the seasons. Being fairly compact and not growing overly large, only around 2.5m height and spread, it’s also a good choice for smaller gardens.
