These scutiform (shield-like) trichomes are outgrowths of the leaf's epidermal layer. Trichomes have a variety of functions. Some serve to protect the leaf, others reduce evaporation and some secrete essential oils. Many have no known purpose. Elaeagnus pungens is a strong growing evergreen shrub often used for hedging.
