Foliage season:

Fantastic compact and variegated Eleagnus that is also very stable and not prone to leaf reversion. To just 4′ x 4′ and dense each olive green leaf is emargined in light yellow. In autumn small off white pendant flowers are intensely fragrant. Slow growing and a good scale for small gardens. Full sun to quite a bit of shade. Striking evergreen that is easy to grow, cold hardy and long lived. Light summer water once established. Avoid boggy sites.
