FLOWERING SHRUB. Elaeagnus pungens aureo-variegata is an attractive variegated evergreen, the bright green leaves up to 4 ½ in. long being marked with a yellow band. They make a pleasing picture on cold winter days. The fragrant white flowers are inconspicuous. This species is rather slow-growing. Increase by cuttings of young shoots in September, and root in a cold frame.
