Elaeagnus is generally used and known for its leathery leaves, grey-green above with silvery undersides, but it does produce a handsome show of small, highly scented creamy white flowers in autumn.

To keep Elaeagnus in shape look to prune back twice a year, once in early spring and then again in autumn. Elaeagnus is very versatile and can be grown in just about any environment.
