Evergreen silverthorns are attractive shrubs of mild climates of Europe. They are valued for vigorous growth and coloured leaves.

Eleador® is a new, patented variety with almost yellow leaves, margined dark green with lighter green highlights. They are leathery, but thinner than on e.g. cherry laurels. The undersides are silvery grey.

Tiny flowers appear in late summer, early autumn and are hard to see unless you look up close. But you can definitely smell them. They have a lovely, sweet fragrance, especially in the evening. They are followed by fruit in spring. 1,5cm long, oval fruit is deep red and taste like dark cherries. It is best to let them ripen well which is when it begins to fall down.

Silverthorn is a fast and vigorous grower. You can prune it almost any time from spring till autumn. It is soil adaptable but needs mulching in our climate to protect surface roots from heavy frost. We suggest planting it in winter shade to eliminate winter sun scald. Even after severe frosts it re-sprouts from healthy wood and makes long new branches. It will not live in boggy and wet conditions. Hardy to min. -22°C.
