Elaeagnus is known for its toughness, it can survive and thrive in places many shrubs cannot, such as highway medians. Elaeagnus x ebbingei is a hybrid from E. pungens. E. x ebbingei is more upright in growth an has no thorns on the branches. This shrub has tiny, fragrant, white flowers and the fruit is sometimes used to make jelly. It can grow to be up to 10-12 feet tall.
