BUCKTHORN, SEA (Hippophae rhamnoides)
Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture

Slender silvery leaves and orange-yellow berries. Grown as a shrub.

Fast growing native deciduous thorny plant, excellent by the sea. Slender silvery leaves, masses of persistent orange-yellow berries in autumn which stay on the bush all winter. Berries high in vitamin C and can be used in marmalade.
Can be very invasive if planted on or near sand dunes, so it should not be planted near such areas. Well drained soil.
 
We can supply:
a) Seed grown plants which will be a random mix of male and female.
b) Female plants (Hippophae rhamnoides Leikora) which bear masses of very large orange berries which in autumn contrast beautifully with the slim sliver foliage. These will need a male pollinator to produce berries.
c) Male plants (Hippophae rhamnoides Poolmix), these provide ample pollen for pollination, but no berries.
d) Mix of 1 male (H. r. Poolmix) to 5 female (H. r. Leikora) to give maximum berrying.
HEDGE Trim in August. For hedges 5-8ft (1.5-2.4m). Plant 2ft (60cm) apart.
