Description

This thorny, deciduous, nitrogen fixing shrub is native to temperate Europe and Asia. The plant can thrive in maritime or inland climates and is tolerant of a wide range of soil types. Sea buckthorn has been receiving a lot of attention for its berries, which produce a nutritionally packed juice high in vitamin C, amino acids and loaded with anti-oxidants. The freshly pressed juice has been used as a tonic for exhaustion, as a cold remedy and has been touted as a cancer preventative in recent studies. Externally, the juice and the oil from the fruit are used in cosmetics, for various skin disorders and as a natural sun block. The medicinal oil from the fruit has been used for ecxema, for burns, for radiation injury and taken internally for intestinal problems. The plants are easy to grow and quite drought hardy once established. They can eventually reach 30 feet and make a great screen or hedge. Male and female plants are required for fruit production; 1 male for every 8 females.We are offering u-nsexed seedling plants, best to plant more than one. Hardy perennial to zone 4.

Latin Name Hippophae rhamnoides
