FOR PLEACHED TREES
Elaeagnus Ebbingei Gilt Edge in Pleached Tree Form Elaeagnus Pleached Trees are popular for their hardiness, evergreen foliage and attractive stilted, neatly trained form. When trained as a pleached tree, the pretty evergreen foliage and intensely fragranced small flowers make Elaeagnus ideal for stilted hedging or above fence screening. To achieve the distinct Pleached Elaeagnus look with a long, clear stem and a square crown that raises above it, this tree is trained over time with the help of bamboo frames and regular pruning. As a result, as the tree matures, its crown will take on a stunning cube form.
This variety Elaeagnus Ebbingei Gilt Edge stands out for its eye-catching variegated foliage. The leaves are dark green with a contrasting vibrant yellow edging. In late autumn, small white flowers appear that are highly fragrant attracting late pollinating insects. Sometimes, the flowers are followed by orange berries. Elaeagnus Gilt Edge holds the coveted Award of Garden Merit (AGM) and the Perfect for Pollinators badge from the Royal Horticultural Society.
