Not bad for $16 🤷🏾‍♂️

Got this Elaeagnus x ebbingei from Lowe’s for $16. Hard to to tell from the picture, but it has a nice flaring nebari and decent movement in the trunk. Some funky branches with some cool dog-legs in them in the right places.

I could put it into the ground to let it thicken a bit, but I kinda like its current proportions. It’ll either go into a pot or development box this spring.

Side note; the little berries are quite delicious. Kinda tastes like raspberry. I looked up whether or not they were edible before I tried one lol.


Glad you looked it up before trying it. Haha


I don’t always look it up lol

That reminds me, I have a holly donor that I need to dig up soon before the dogs start trying to eat the berries.

I’ve been waiting for the trunk to thicken up a little first.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the design.
