Amber Dawn™ Seaberry
Hippophae rhamnoides 'Amber Dawn'
Amber Dawn is an exceptionally broad, though short, variety growing only 4-6' tall, but up to 6 feet wide! Originating in the Buryat Republic of Russia, north of Mongolia, Amber Dawn is loaded with large, bright-orange berries that ripen in early to mid-summer. Requires a male seaberry for cross-pollination.
Seaberry, also known as Sea Buckthorn, originates from Russia and Central Asia, where it is prized for its edible and nutritious berries. Its thorns make it an ideal hedge plant, and its ability to fix nitrogen helps feed the surrounding plants. The powerfully-flavored berries, which taste like a punch of orange and a hint guava, are delicious in jams and juice. Hardy to zone 3. Wind-pollinated; one male plant will pollinize 6-8 surrounding female plants.
