The Wax Leaf Privet, Ligustrum japonicum ‘Texanum,' is a fast-growing evergreen that adapts well to a variety of landscapes, whether used along with a border between homes, as a privacy hedge or windbreak! From northern China, Korea and Japan feature branches and leaves that grow densely together, so it is a favorite for adding privacy to any property. This dense and compact evergreen can bring a formal look to any landscape too, especially when used as topiaries. They are often shaped into cones, globes and “vertical poodle” forms that are sure to get noticed for all the right reasons! You will often see them developed into pyramid forms flanking walkways and gateways.
Heat tolerant and cold hardy, the Wax Leaf Privet requires little to moderate water once established. They also thrive in an area with full sun or partial shade exposures. It will keep its lush, dense green foliage all year long. Adding to its beauty are the fragrant white flowers that bloom profusely in the spring, attracting hummingbirds into your garden!
We love to plant the Wax Leaf Privet in urban, suburban and rural landscapes because it fits well with a broad range of sceneries.
