Doris,

That's a common mistake around here. People say I live in a banana belt. Wrong, our Island is in a rain shadow. Not any wormer then Seattle, just dryer.

Back to the plant: It's a small fruit,reddish,size of a table grape. The plant is a nitrogen fixer

Eric,

An Olive tree?

The leaves look similar to my Autumn Olive.
The flowers look similar too, but mine has clusters of blooms, where your plant has single blooms.
Mine doesn't produce fruit.

RE: Guessing Game

Something in my gut told me "Mr. Horticulture" (Kt) would guess correctly. You're GOOD, Kt!

So the Neil Diamond song is "Cherry Cherry"?

Julie

RE: Guessing Game

Winner!!! Kt,
I was wondering when you were going to chime in. The Elaeagnus multiflora I have is called Sweet Goumi. It has more and better tasting fruit.

Julie, your Autumn olive is a Elaeagnus umbellata.


 o
RE: Guessing Game

Yes, other common names are "Gumi" and "Cherry Elaeagnus."

I want one. It should grow for me down here.

RE: Guessing Game ++++++++

I have 1 and would like 6 more.

Julie,
This is the song.

Gitchy goomy, gitchy gaddy, sit you laddie down on your daddys knee,
And aint it a nice place to be?
Goggin noggin, papas rockin like a mockin bird in a windy tree,
And that aint no place for me.
Been there one time, been there two times,
Been there three times more than I care to be,
But were gonna make it through, gitchy goomy.

Life is good, life is fine, life is warm,
Life is kind, can you see it?
Love is great, love is right,
Keeps you warm late at night when you need it.
Baby boy, daddys joy, lifes a toy,
But you dont wanna break it.
Like a sweet symphony, all you need is the key, you can play it.

Gitchy goomy, gitchy gaddy, sit you laddie down while I have my say,
Now dont be runnin away.
Goggin noggin, papas talkin
Dont go walkin off like you mean to play,
Well, you can have it your way.
Been there one time, been there two times,
Been there three times more than I care to say,
But youre gonna be o.k. gitchy goomy.

Life is good, life is fine, life is warm,
Life is kind, can you see it?
Love is great, love is right,
Keeps you warm late at night when you need it.
Baby boy, daddys joy, lifes a toy,
But you dont wanna break it.
Like a sweet symphony, all you need is the key, you can play it.

Been there one time, been there two times,
Been there three times more than I care to be,
Seen it one time, seen it two times,
Seen it three times, lord n its plain to see.
Ah, you gonna make it through gitchy goomy.
You n me gonna make it through gitchy goomy.
Ah, you gonna make it through gitchy goomy.

Eric,
Now that song I don't remember, at least not from the words. Maybe if I heard the melody I'd recognize it.

My Autumn Olive came with the property we bought. I didn't know what it was for a few years. Just happened to find it browsing the internet. The flowers are incredibly sweet scented. I understand the plant can be invasive in our area, but I'm not worried because there is only one in a large meadow that we keep mowed.

That was fun, even though I didn't win.

Julie
