A large thorny suckering shrub, unlike most cultivated Eleagnus, this is deciduous. Clothed with eye-catching very pale silvery grey leaves, this makes a good contrast for green-leaved shrubs, or maybe Cotinus. Small yellow flowers with a strong honey scent appear in mid-summer. Not the most exciting of shrubs in the winter, but its height allows other more interesting plants to be placed in front of it. At Fuller's Mill Gardens in Suffolk it's planted effectively in light shade under Silver Birches.
To 4 m (12 feet). Prune in winter.
