Hippophae rhamnoides - Sea Buckthorn

Also known as the Sea Buckthorn, Hippophae rhamnoides is a deciduous shrub growing to a maximum height of approximately 6 metres. It has a broad, vase shaped crown and narrow, elongated, grey-green leaves which turn yellow in autumn. On female plants, small, yellow flowers are followed by bright orange berries in summer. Best grown in full sun or partial shade in almost all soils. It is also extremely resilient to salt laden winds, so perfect for a costal garden.
