Sea Buckthorn


Out of stock


A medium to tall, multi-stemmed, suckering shrub with silvery-green leaves that reaches 8 to 12 feet in height with equal spread.  Sea buckthorn is tolerant of dry soils, high pH, and salinity. The fruit, borne in clusters along the stems, are very astringent but high in vitamin C.  Needs two plants for pollination.  Lots of thorns.

***Special note: Sea buckthorn requires both a male and female plant for fruit production. Because these plants were started from seed, we cannot identify if a plant is male or female at this stage. To boost the odds of successfully getting at least 1 male and 1 female, we’ve decided to sell the sea buckthorn in bundles of 5 plants. There is a 97% chance of getting at least 1 female and 1 male in a bundle of 5. That of course means that there is a 3% chance you get all males or all females. Good luck!***

Landscaping: Best in full sun. Prefers moist, well-drained soils.

Size: 12-20″ bare root
