Raintree Select Goumi
Eleagnus multiflora 'Raintree Select'
Be ready to enjoy loads of nutritious, tasty scarlet berries from this hardy bush! This seedling stood out at Raintree for its uniquely heavy production. A good pollenizer for Sweet Scarlet! 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. Pests and diseases don't bother this rugged beauty.
