Seabuckthorn

Although seldom available In the United Mates, this species has potential /or use in sandy soils where oceanic salts are prevalent. It is ail extremely irregular, mult litem med, rounded small tree or shrub with I - to i-in.-long leaves. The grayish foliage, like that of Efaeagnm att^ustifoiiat Russian-Olive, is rather attractive and serves as a pleasant diversion from the typical shades of green. The yellowish llowers, which open before the leaves in March and April, are not particularly shows1. 1 he Vt- to '/i-in.-long, orange fruit ripen in September and persist into fall and winter The species languishes under high fertility and should only be used in Infertile soils. I have tried to grow the species on see-eral occasions without any success, In Europe, particularly the Netherlands and Germany, Seabuckthorn is used in highway plantings. Grows 8 to .10 ft, high, 10 to 40 ft, wide. Zones 4 to 7. Europe, China, Himalayas.
