Vicary Golden Privet
Ligustrum x vicaryi
|Description||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.|
|Watering||Water when top 3 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 8 to 10 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||This unusual deciduous Privet is beautifully colored both during the growing season and in the fall when it takes on a fiery tint. Makes a good hedge but may become fully deciduous where winters are cooler. A great plant for wild gardens or in foundation plantings, as an ever-changing background or screen.|
|Companion Plants||Spirea (Spiraea); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Potentilla (Potentilla); Smoke Tree (Cotinus); Weigela (Weigela)|
|Care||Grows easily in a wide range of soils, provided well-draining. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.|
