Hippophae rhamnoides Romeo - Sea Buckthorn (male)

Sea Buckthorn Romeo (male)

A male sea buckthorn, selected to be a pollinating partner to sea buckthorn Juliet, Hippophae rhamnoides Romeo is a large, semi-evergreen shrub of average vigour, with an upright, rounded, bushy and very thorny habit, ideally suited as a burglar- or stock-proof hedge in coastal gardens. The long, lance-shaped leaves are silvery-green. Insignificant clusters of small, whitish-yellow flowers are borne in April, before the leaves. Sea buckthorn Romeo is a low maintenance, pest-free shrub; water it well on planting and while establishing, after which it is drought-tolerant. Prune off any dead or badly-placed shoots. This plant does not produce fruit, you will need to plant a female cultivar like sea buckthorn Juliet, to get the Vitamin C-rich berries
