10 x Ligustrum 'Aureum' (Golden Privet) 60-90cm bare root


Calculated at checkout

10 bare root 1yr old plants approx. 60-90m tall

Golden Privet is a quick growing, evergreen/semi-evergreen shrub with oval, variegated gold and green leaves. It produces clusters of pretty white flowers from August to September (only if not pruned every year) followed by black berries in August. Privet is excellent for formal hedges as it can be clipped regularly into sharp shapes to create a lush, dense hedge (prune twice a year in late spring and mid summer). Alternatively it can be left to grow into a more informal shape, where it will flower and fruit freely. Grows well on any well-drained soil. Prune to desire height, between 2-10ft. Can also be planted interspersed with Green privet

Recommended planting distance: 1ft (30cm) apart

Hardiness: Fully Hardy

Suitable for: Single species evergreen hedge, formal or informal

Features: Evergreen, easy to trim and shape, flowers if not trimmed every year


Bare root plants: These plants can be planted anytime between November and March. We keep our bare root hedging in tubs of damp compost at the nursery. If you are not planting your plants immediately then keep the roots damp (preferably in compost) and out the sun until you are ready to plant.
