Description

Ligustrum jap. ‘Texanum’ instant hedge is sometimes called Japanese Privet or Waxleaf Privet. It has a dark green glossy evergreen leaf. In the Summer if left untrimmed or lightly trimmed it will have creamy white flowers on which need trimming off when they fade to keep the density of the hedge.

All the privets take pruning very well so not only can this be kept as a nice clipped hedge it can also be trained in to topiary if required.

Ligustrum jap. ‘texanum’ instant hedge is very hardy (down to minus 18’C), it is also very tolerant of all soil types but it is advisable to not plant into heavy waterlogged soil as the plant will struggle with this. They are excellent in coastal and exposed areas.
