Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) Hedging Plants
Sea Buckthorn offer a colour show of large orange-yellow berries in masses on female plants. Sea Buckthorn is one of the best shrubs for those windy, exposed, seaside locations. It has long skinny sliver coloured leaves and bears masses of orange berries on the female plants. Tiny yellow flowers in April and spikes that offer a security barrier. It has a long season as the berries will remain on the plant thru winter.
Sea Buckthorn has a fantastic ability to withstand those coastal gales, and salt spray making this the top hedging plant for shelter, and windbreak. It will grow in almost any soil type, but likes the sandy, dry conditions of the seaside. It will do well in other exposed, windy areas as well.
- Sea Buckthorn is found growing on sand dunes and coastal areas. .
