Cardinal Autumn Olive makes a wonderful hedge and wildlife shelter. It's natural feeding station and nesting place for many desirable songbirds. They are handsome bushes with silver-green foliage and sweet-scented, yellow, spring flowers. In September, branches are smothered with baskets of bright red berries loved by songbirds. Super hardy, even in the meanest soil, in sun or partial shade. The Cardinal Autumn Olive is ideal for property lines, corners, borders and windbreaks. Zones 3-9. Highly recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. There's nothing that compares with it for screens, barriers, and hedges and erosion control. It tolerates a wide range of soil and climatic conditions.
