Goumi Sweet Scarlet
Eleagnus multiflora 'Sweet Scarlet'
Be ready to enjoy loads of nutritious, tasty scarlet berries from this hardy bush! This Ukrainian variety was selected for fruit production by Kiev Botanic Garden. Goumi fixes nitrogen that it will share with neighbors, so it's great as a hedgerow plant as well as in an area that will support its round, upright and rustic shape. Thousands of soft yellow, bell-shaped flowers in April are intensely fragrant and great bee forage, too!
Very versatile - will grow and fruit in sun or shade, but fruit production is better with more sun. Disease resistant, and no known pests bother this rugged bush.
