The Seaberry, also called Sea Buckthorn, is a spiny ornamental shrub with large bright orange, edible, tart berries that abundantly cover the branches in the fall. Seaberry fruits are easily harvested and make a good jelly or sauce and a delicious juice. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and have other healing properties, as well as industrial application. Seaberry plants are hardy to minus 40F, drought tolerant, and capable of growing on poor soils and improving them through their nitrogen fixation. Good hedge plants, the gray green leaves of the Seaberry have silvery undersides making them a pleasant addition to any landscape.
Siberian Sea Berry Bushes are extremely hardy selections that are well adapted to a short growing season as found in the Midwest and intermountain west coast states. All require a male for pollination.
