More Details

Olive Martini™ Elaeagnus, scientifically known as Elaegnus ebbengii 'Viveleg', is a versatile evergreen shrub that adds year-round interest to gardens and landscapes. Celebrated for its attractive foliage that combines green and silver hues, this plant is also a great choice for hedges and screens. Resilient and easy to grow, Olive Martini™ is perfect for those looking to add a sturdy yet elegant element to their outdoor spaces.

Please note: Images on our website depict plants and trees at full maturity to showcase their expected grown characteristics. These images are illustrative examples only and do not represent the size of plants or trees upon delivery.

Pruning: Minimal pruning is needed, primarily for shaping or removing damaged branches. Late winter or early spring is the best time for any required pruning.

Fertilization: Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to encourage healthy growth and lush foliage.

Winter Protection: Generally hardy, but in the northern parts of its range, a layer of mulch around the base can help protect the root system in winter.


Choose a location with well-drained soil that receives full sun to partial shade. Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball and about the same depth. Remove the plant from its container and gently place it in the hole, making sure the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Backfill with soil and tamp down firmly to eliminate air pockets. Water the plant thoroughly to help settle the soil around the root system. If desired, apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture and protect the roots.

Olive Martini™ Elaeagnus is remarkably adaptable when it comes to sunlight, flourishing in full sun to partial shade. It prefers well-drained soil and has minimal watering needs, especially once established, making it a low-maintenance addition to any garden setting.
