Item details

The Wolf-willow (American Silveryberry) seeds are washed and sorted. They can be used for planting or DIY pierced for beading.

BEADING: To pierce the seeds, first soak in warm water to soften them up or simmer for a short time (20 min.) on a stovetop. Leave them in the pot for at least an hour. Minimal soaking and using distilled water helps a bit to keep their rich, dark brown colour. But tap water is fine, too! (They don't fade easily.)

GARDENING: The ornamental shrub or small tree, Wolf-willow or American Silverberry, is not actually a willow (Salicaceae). It an Oleaster, like Sea buckthorn or Russian olive. Planting is recommended in dry, sunny patches where suckering and spreading are not a nuisance. It flowers May-June (bee-attracting; small yellow blossoms). It is drought-tolerant for xeriscaping and makes a good hedge or windbreak.

Plant: Elaeagnus commutata
Wolf-willow, American Silverberry, Wild olive

Garden hardiness zone: 2-7
