I am new to this site & need some help identifying a shrub. It is about 2 years old (very small when I received it). It is about 1 foot high with silvery green leaves. I keep pulling out suckers that spring up. So far it has not bloomed & I am not sure if it is supposed to. I was told that it looks like a Camellia. The leaf does look like a Camellia but I think I am to far north (zone 4) for that. Any suggestions will help. I want to move the shrub but want to make sure I move it to the correct spot.

Thanks in advance for your help smile

evergreen? "suckers" from rhizomes? leaf size? leaf arrangement on branch?

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

wavey hi saic ~
your photos look very similar to a shrub that i grow,
do you think it could be an eleagnus??
granted, i'm in zone 8 and i'm not sure of the range of this plant,
but, the silvery leaf, the almost fuzzy brown stems, the tendency to have many stems . . .
all characteristics that make me think, "hmmm, could be".
there are a number of varieties, but maybe eleagnus pungens or eleagnus x ebbingei?

Hi Zuzu's Petals wavey

You are right. It is an Elaeagnus Commutata "Silver Berry". I finally got in touch with the person who gave me the shrub. I am anxious to see the berries. Do you have an idea how old the shrub has to be before it gets the berries?

Thanks for your help!

<strong> Duh

Your E.pungens Maculata sounds great. I love shrubs/flowers that smell nice. It is such a treat to go into you garden & have the smell wafting on the air.
