Elaeagnus glabra / Tsurugumi ツルグミ

Elaeagnus glabra, a liana evergreen shrub, inhabits forests, forest edges, or cliff edges in seashores, coastal districts, or hills, extending long on other trees and growing 2-3m tall. Leaves are alternate; blades measure 4-8cm long, 2.5-3.5cm wide, long-oblong or oval-like long-oblong, with silver scaly hairs on surfaces first, which fall out later, back surfaces generally with dense red-brown scaly hairs. Axils hang some light brown flowers, and calyx tubes are slender, 4-6mm long, and taper toward the bases. Fruit (pseudocarp), about 1.5cm-long long-oblong, mature red in April. Bloom time: October-November.
