Elaeagnus umbellata is a deciduous shrub found in sunny, gravelly soil areas, such as river beaches, roadsides, etc., growing 2-3m, sometimes to 5m in height. Leaves are oblong or lanceolate, the tips dull, the base wedge-shaped, and the margins entire. Leaves: scaly hairs are dropping off on the surface while in fruit; the backsides look white since the scaly staffs cover them. Flowers, white, appear pendent from axils and gradually turn yellowish. Fruit, 6-8mm across, ripen red in Sep. to Nov. Bloom time: April-June.
