Looking for a tough plant that can withstand harsh conditions? Look no further than Elaeagnus angustifolia, also known as the Russian Olive. This species grows as a hedge and can tolerate maritime exposure and drought. Not only does it have appealing silvery-green leaves and fragrant flowers, it also enriches soil rather than draining it of nutrients by fixing atmospheric nitrogen. The sweet, edible fruit and highly aromatic flowers are used for medicinal purposes in some cultures. While it is an invasive species in certain areas, it is a valuable ornamental plant and a tough survivor in many conditions. Give it a try in your garden or hedge today!
