Hello Hector
Thanks for the info.They do have silvery undersides to the leaves.
Almost seem to be evergreen, as no leaves dropped yet on the small
plants I have. I have been told the same thing by a few other good
people. I am sure you are right. Is the Elaeagnus Uniflora (the one
you mention) the same as Eleagnus Multiflora....with different
spellings on each word? By the way, the Aromatnaya and Smyrna quinces
I got from Hidden Springs Nursery are both doing really good here in
zone 8b, South La. and they are about 2 years old now. Beautiful
plants and I can't wait until they fruit !
Thanks a lot, Pete Benfield
