Q:Is this poisoness to dogs?
by|Dec 10, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello there Tracy. Thank you for your wonderful question. When ingested by animals the California Privet can cause gastrointestinal upset. The level of this issue may depend on the amount ingested by the animal. For safety purposes, if you have an animal that enjoys chewing on trees or live plant material in general, its best to avoid planting in the areas of the animal. Please let us know if we can help you further at online@bellnursery.com. Happy gardening and holidays to you!

        An excellent shrub
        We received this shrub today, called California Privet, also known as Ligustrum oval folium. It was very well packaged and seemed to be watered well before it left a nursey. It has the traits to attract butterflies and is drought tolerant. Being drought tolerant is very important to me. most people tend to neglect water plants properly. It blooms in mid-summer and has hardiness to -10F. Apparently it can grow to 10-12 feet high, so prepare accordingly.

          I bought two of these at Home Depot in person. They were cheaper and about a foot taller. In regular nurseries around the area, larger and fuller plants where the same price.
