Comentário: "Elaeagnus angustifolia, commonly called silver berry, oleaster, Russian olive, or wild olive, is a species of Elaeagnus, native to western and central Asia, from southern Russia and Kazakhstan to Turkey and Iran. The flowers are highly aromatic.Its common name comes from its similarity in appearance to the olive (Olea europaea), in a different botanical family, Oleaceae." (Wikipedia)
