Description

Golden Privet (Ligustrum ov. Aureum) Instant hedging is a semi evergreen hedge. It is a brightly coloured shrub with a rich yellow edge to the leaf with a green centre, sometimes the leaves can be completely yellow. It grows slower than the Green Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) but it still forms a stunning hedge. In cold winters or windy locations these plants will lose a lot of there leaves but they will flush back into leaf in the spring and look just as stunning as previous years. If trimmed with the top slightly narrower than the base the Golden privet (Ligustrum ov. Aureum) instant hedging will keep leaves all the way to the ground.

The Royal Horticultural Society gave Ligustrum ov. Aureum an Award of Merit in 1977 and an Award of Garden Merit in 1984.
