Hippophae ssp. If you're looking for a dense, fruiting hedge bush, look no further! These cold-hardy plants are grown from seed, thus may be male or female unlike cultivated varieties. The nodules on their roots help fix nitrogen into the soil, and the resilient plants are salt tolerant. They can withstand the juglones from walnuts and will reach up to 6 meters tall, forming virtually impermeable thickets if left to their own devices. One male plant will pollinate 5 females, and the female seedlings will bear fruit given there is a male plant near by. The leaves can be enjoyed in tea.
Height including roots: 20 cm one year seedling
Canadian Hardiness Zone: 3
Recommended Use: nitrogen fixer, possibly fresh eating (if plant is female and male plant is nearby).
Ripens: late Aug/early Sept, if female.
Pollination: self sterile
