Full to Part Sun. 1/4″ sweet-tart berries, ornamental 6-8′ tall shrub, very disease and pest resistant, nitrogen fixer, self fertile
Another nitrogen-fixing shrub, though it is not a legume. Very similar to autumn olive, though it is smaller in stature, has bigger berries borne in spring, and is not known to be expansive (invasive). Thorny-stemmed bush to 8’ tall, covered with abundant early flowers that cast a strong floral fragrance. These are followed by oblong, silvery-red, juicy 1/2” berries that have a soft, chewable seed in the center (interesting side note that this seed is very rich in healthy oils). They have a flavor like a tart cherry mixed with apple and are the first berries to ripen here. Fully self-fertile. Nitrogen Fixer. .
