Seaberry (Hippophae rhamnoides)

Bare root seedlings, source plants from Burnt Ridge Nursery, Jan 2018

DIED SUMMER 2018: Summer 2018 was especially brutal. Growth kept getting fried back in June and by late July it was dead.

I bought these plants to be an understory nitrogen-fixer. The Hippophae and Elaeagnus families fix nitrogen using a whole different set of bacteria than legumes do. I bought some Seaberries in 2017, but they died (too much sun). So I have these in a temporary pot underneath a moringa. If they make it through the summer then I will bareroot them this winter and replant them under other trees. Careful, they have thorns.
