Product Details

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!

Q:Can this Sunshine Ligustrum Privet Shrub be planted in a container throughout the year?
by|Nov 13, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  I have one that I have had for almost a year and have not had time to plant it in the ground. That will be done in December. It has not flourished like the ones that I planted in the ground but it has survived.

          Q:is it safe for cat?
          by|Aug 19, 2022

          Answer This Question

          A:  Yes, we have lots of feral cats around here. Some sleep under them when it is hot. The first two years I had mine were the two consecutive years Texas had such hard winters. I was afraid they were not going to survive ... they are evergreen. This year they have taken off and are beautiful. I recommend them as mine are not only subject to the winter but to the Hot West Texas sun. 100 + temps and the drought we are coming out of, have not affected them and I only lightly watered once a week during that trying time. If you buy ... good luck.

          by|Aug 22, 2022

            A:  Not safe. The glycosides can cause tachycardia and irregular heartbeat if ingested by cats or dogs.

              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
