Seaberry plants are hardy to -40° F, drought tolerant, and capable of growing on poor soils and improving them through their nitrogen fixation. 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. Good hedge plants, the gray green leaves of the Seaberry have silvery undersides making them a pleasant addition to any landscape.
Siberian Sea Berry plants 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.
