Also called Japanese silverberry, autumn elaeagnus, umbellata oleaster and spreading oleaster.  I have seen some sources spell (misspell?) it Elaeagnus umbellate.

Very distantly related to (not in the same genus, order nor subclass as) the food olive European olive Olea europaea .

Native to eastern Asia, from the Himalayas to 🇯🇵 Japan.  Because its roots fix atmospheric nitrogen, it can outcompete many other trees in infertile soils.  Invasive > learn+quiz Invasive > Global Invasive > in USA+Canada Invasive > report it!

In the 🇺🇸 USA, the USDA suggests those seeking a drought tolerant tree replace this plant with native alternatives 🍓︎ strawberry bush Euonymus americanus , wax-myrtle Myrica cerifera , meadowsweet Spiraea latifolia or mapleleaf viburnum Viburnum acerifolium .[1]
