£0.72

Sea Buckthorn is thorny with stiff branches.Leaves are distinct pale silvery green. Orange berry fruit, soft and juicy rich in oils. Very resistant to frost injury, making it more suitable for planting.

This is not just a seaside plant, although it thrives near the sea especially on sand dunes. It rapidly spreads and suckers to form a spiny grey leaved barrier around 4 metres tall. It is totally wind resistant.
It is dioecious, with separate male and female plants. The male produces brownish flowers which produce wind-distributed pollen. The female plants produce orange berry-like fruit 6–9 millimetres (0.24–0.35 in) in diameter, soft, juicy and rich in oils. It is not possible to establish whether there are male or female plants until they are at least 4/5 years old. The roots distribute rapidly and extensively, providing a non-leguminous nitrogen fixation role in surrounding soils. 

Landscape uses - Sea-buckthorn is also a popular garden and landscaping shrub, particularly making a good vandal-proof barrier hedge with an aggressive basal shoot system exploited in some parts of the world as wind breaks and to stabilize riverbanks and steep slopes. They have value in northern climates for their landscape qualities, as the coloured berry clusters are retained through winter. Branches may be used by florists for designing ornaments.  

The fruit of the plant has a high vitamin C content– placing sea-buckthorn fruit among the most highly enriched plant sources of vitamin C.

Consumer products -Sea-buckthorn fruit can be used to make pies, jams, lotions, fruit wines and liquors. The juice or pulp has other potential applications in foods or beverages. In Mongolia, it is made into a juice drink, with concentrates also available. In Finland, it is used as a nutritional ingredient in baby food.

Size: Height approx.3 meters by 3 meters spread
Environment: Can tolerate the sun best on loam/sand conditions. Good plant for exposed position.
