GreenScreen in the spotlight: Mobilane GreenScreen Elaeagnus

16 June 2023

Every month, we highlight a Green Screen from our range. Last month we started with the Pyracantha and this month we continue The Mobilane GreenScreen Elaeagnus ebbingei.

An introduction to Elaeagnus

Nature offers us a wide range of beautiful hedges, each with their own unique characteristics and appeal. One of these striking hedges is the Elaeagnus ebbingei, also known as Oleaster or Silverberry. The plant is known for its graceful appearance and various benefits. We would like to tell you a little more about the benefits of this hedge.

A Mediterranean touch in the garden

Native to the Middle East and Eastern Europe, the Oleaster brings a touch of exoticism to any garden. With its slender, silvery leaves and elegant growth form, Elaeagnus is a feast for the eyes. The silver leaf surface reflects sunlight in an enchanting way – hence the nickname ‘Silverberry’ – making the hedge a real eye-catcher.

Environmental friendliness

Elaeagnus is an eco-friendly choice for your garden. As a species native to many parts of Europe, it contributes to biodiversity and supports local ecosystems. The Oleaster attracts various insects that occur naturally in the region, such as bees and butterflies, and provides food and shelter for birds and other animals. So, by planting a Mobilane Elaeagnus Green Screen in your garden, you help maintain the natural balance and create a healthy environment.

An easy-to-maintain hedge

An additional advantage of the Elaeagnus is that it requires relatively little maintenance. The hedge is generally quite resistant to diseases and pests. In addition, the Green Screen grows well in a variety of soil types and tolerates both full sun and light shade. With minimal care, the Elaeagnus can thrive and will be a beautiful element in your garden. This Green Screen has deep roots that help it draw water from deeper soil layers, making it more drought-resistant than many other hedges and plants.

Availability of the Elaeagnus hedge at Mobilane
