Sweet Scarlet Goumi berry

(Elaeagnus multiflora)

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. .

3″ pots $3.50, Quart pots $7, Gallon* pots $14

Plants are rarely available in ALL sizes listed, and availability of plants varies from day to day. Please call before you come to check availability.
