Elaeagnus pungens / Nawashirogumi ナワシログミ

Elaeagnus pungens, an evergreen shrub inhabiting seashores or coastal area's forest edges, grows to 2-3m in height. Branches are solid and hard to break, young ones cover themselves with brown lepidic hairs, and branchlets often change into 5-1.5mm-long prickles. Axils generate pale yellow-brown flowers; calyx tubes are 4-7mm long, with four ridges, and make pinched-in portions and follow to ovaries. The outsides of the flowers have dense scaly hairs and brown ones, and the sepals are ovate-like triangular. Bloom time: October-November.
