Oleaster (Elaeagnus angustifolia)
|Common Name||Latin Name||Plant Family|
Plants can be grown as a hedge in exposed positions, tolerating maritime exposure. It is fairly fast-growing and very tolerant of pruning, but is rather open in habit and does not form a dense screen[K]. Because the plant fixes atmospheric nitrogen, it makes a hedge that enriches the soil rather than depriving it of nutrients[K].
An essential oil obtained from the flowers is used in perfumery.
A gum from the plant is used in the textile industry in calico printing.
Wood – hard, fine-grained. Used for posts, beams, domestic items[74, 100], it is also much used for carving. The wood is an excellent fuel[74, 146].
