Product Overview

The Sunshine Ligustrum from the Southern Living Plant Collection completely reinvents the traditional Privet! It's coveted for its vibrant golden-yellow, evergreen foliage. This is a true landscaping treasure, and once you know it, you'll recognize it wherever you see it. New growth emerges as a delicate lime green, which does a phenomenal job of awakening the landscape from its winter slumber. This foliage will continuously intensify as spring turns into summer, at which point they will be a gleaming shade of gold. The more sunlight they get, the better. More sun produces more yellow leaves, while less sun results in more yellow-green foliage. This Ligustrum proves itself to be incredibly versatile. Its compact and upright form makes for a tremendous natural hedge, no pruning required!

white fly favorite
I have had mine for several years. Each year, no matter how much II soray, it it gets infested with white flies. They turn the plant black. Fortunately you can trim it way back and the new growth is brighr yellow. But it is a pain and expense to maintain this shrub

    Substantial variation in plants purchased online vs in-store. Cannot recommend
    Our family installed a row of Sunshine Ligustrums this summer and were very satisfied with the plants bought in store. Another family member had to order one of the plants online since we bought all available in-store. The plant we received online appears similar in a broad sense so far as being a yellow/green shrub, however, it is vastly different to the in-store purchased ones in terms of genetic physical attributes that are unchangeable (e.g. muted foliage coloring, small leaves, stringy low density foliage). To summarize, the plants bought in-store have larger and denser foliage with a striking combination of yellow and green. The online plant has small foliage that is not near as dense and the coloring is low contrast pastel yellow and green. Attached with this post are pictures of the two (looks even more different in person). I'm wondering what to do about this. We verified that the correct product was ordered online and the plant tag was correct.

      I received 4 of this plant in two separate orders. The first two looked great. The second two couldn’t be any smaller. Very disappointed.

      Excellent Quality Plants
      I was a bit hesitant at the idea of buying plants online, but with no luck finding them in any stores or at the local greenhouses, I figured I would give it a shot. I ordered 4 of these on Saturday and they were waiting on my porch when I got off work on Wednesday. They were packed very neatly and securely and were every bit as good as I had hoped for. Foliage was bright and yellow and appeared to be very healthy. I would not hesitate buying more plants again from Home Depot. 100% satisfied

          I bought two units. One of them was in ok condition, the other one...not so much. Plus if you go to a place to buy your landscaping plants in addition to see if they are healthy, you try to get similar suze and shapes from the same plant, so it looks nice when they compise your landscape. When they sent me these plants looks like they could not care less. I really regret this purshase. Not a good experience. Not goos products delivered.
