Item details

The brand new Sunshine Ligustrum from the Southern Living Plants Collection reinvents the traditionally invasive Ligustrum and recreates it into a sterile, non-invasive cultivar. This beautiful evergreen is most noted for its year-round vibrant yellow foliage, yet in early Spring, new growth emerges as a delicate lime green that complements the Spring foliage colors characteristic of the season. Once summer is in full swing, the Sunshine lives up to its name as its golden leaves illuminate the landscape. The more sunlight, the better for this sun-loving plant that reflects that light back upon the landscape through its petite oval leaves.

This Ligustrum proves itself to be incredibly versatile, as its compact, upright form makes a tremendous natural hedge that requires no pruning. However, the sunshine also lends itself to pruning without skipping a beat, and can be shaped into small topiaries that make for head-turning, unique container plants. Plant this hardy and long-lived plant in well drained garden soil and Fertilize in early spring for best performance.
