Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Known as the Golden Privet, Ligustrum ovalifolium 'Aureum' is a resilient and easy to grow evergreen shrub with yellow leaves, marked green in the centre. A dense growth habit and tolerance to pruning make this striking Privet an excellent choice for evergreen hedges. Golden Privet is also a fabulous addition to mixed borders where it adds foliage interest and the small cream flowers can be allowed to develop, which are attractive to bees and butterflies. Small black berries follow in the autumn which are eaten by birds. Drought-resistant, fast growing and easy to maintain this shrub has a prestigious RHS AGM. Height and spread: Up to 4m (13').

Flowering Months
Privet can be grown as either as free-standing shrub or trained as a hedge. The Free-standing shrubs are low maintenance, needing very little priuning; simply removed any dead, damaged or diseased growth each spring. Hedges can be trimmed in May and again in August. After cutting, the plants will benefit from a mulch, approximately 5cm (2") deep of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plants. Caution: harmful if eaten.
Privet can be grown in any well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. It will tolerate soils ranging from sand to chalk and clay, and even areas of pollution.
