History: Pollmix sea buckthorn was developed as a series of clones to aid in the pollination of female sea buckthorn plants. It is a German cultivar.
Why We Grow It: Although Pollmix does not produce berries, it is a good option for pollinating female varieties! Aside from that, the attractive silvery green leaves can make this shrub an appealing plant to have in the yard, and it is also good for erosion control or creating windbreaks.
