By Jill Kokemuller Thorny Elaeagnus (Elaeagnus pungens), also called silverthorn or thorny olive, is a fast-growing evergreen shrub that can grow up to 15 feet tall if it is not pruned. Silverthorn Author: Jill Kokemuller. Oct 31, Eleagnus is a great hedge or foundation planting. If it is growing too tall, it can be height controlled by selective pruning. I personally don’t like the looks of a sheared plant, but prefer a more natural look with selective branch pruning.

In late winter or early spring you can use sharp bypass hand pruners or hedge shears to perform an all-over shaping.

Pruning Elaeagnus. Trim back unwanted branches in spring. Avoid removing wood that is more than a few years old. Trim hedges in early and late summer.

Important Note: Diseased, dying, or otherwise very weak plants can be killed by rejuvenation pruning.

On variegated forms, promptly remove any green reverted shoots to keep the variegated format. Propagating Elaeagnus.
