An interesting variation on the Autumn Olive theme with similar sized shrub and fruit. In the spring this unique Japanese variety is covered with fragrant, white blossoms, which are followed in late summer by large golden berries.
SEMI-FERTILE* | ZONE 3 | HARVEST: LATE SEPT.
Autumn olive bushes are somewhat related to Goumi bushes and boast the same nitrogen fixing abilities. They are hardy and vigorous and will thrive almost anywhere. In fact, they may be best suited to less fertile sites as they tend to prosper with such exuberance that they can crowd out less vigorous plants.
PLEASE NOTE : Although Autumn Olive has many benefits, it is designated as an invasive exotic species in some areas.
