Japanese Privet (Ligustrum japonicum)
- Bright white blossoms during spring
- Ideal for a flowering yet clean tree
- Evergreen canopy provides year-round shade
- Lower maintenance & easy to grow!
The Japanese Privet is a heavily branched, fast growing evergreen with a tall stature that makes it ideal for use as a quick privacy hedge solution, and it can also provide year-round shade with big seasonal color! As great as it is for screen hedges, it’s also a fantastic candidate for simple topiary forms where it is an excellent choice for side-yard screens or as garden partitions. We also love to use in them in mass plantings, for a stunning look that is sure to add curb appeal!
From northern China, Korea, and Japan, Ligustrum japonicum is prized for its dense, compact habit, glossy medium to dark green foliage and fragrant white flowers that bloom in large clusters in the spring. The beautiful flowers are sure to attract hummingbirds into your garden, so get your camera ready! Ornamental blue berries follow the flowers, which can create a striking contrast with the foliage and attract a variety of birds.
There is no doubt that the Japanese Privet will add beauty and value to a property, no matter how it’s used in the landscape. Ask us how!
