Elaeagnus angustifolia (weed) L. - (Russian olive)
Russian-olive is a small tree or large shrub which was introduced into North America in the early 1900s. It was planted by prairie farmers as a shelterbelt plant and also used as an ornamental. It is invasive, especially in some riparian environments, replacing native plants. It is shade tolerance and forms a symbiosis with nitrogen-fixing bacteria.
