Vicary Golden Privet

Ligustrum x vicaryi

SKU
05840
An excellent upright deciduous shrub best used for informal, unclipped hedges. Bright golden foliage color lasts all season long, especially when planted in full sun. Plant with green-leaved plants for a pleasant contrast. Foliage takes on a purple-red tone in fall. Often semi-evergreen in mild winter climates.
