Questions & Answers

Do you think it can survive in winter with no or little sunlight?

My backyard gets lots of sunlight in summer but not in winter.
Asked by: NY
I have wonderful praise for this Sunshine Liguestrum, we had a foot of snow and rains continuously during the whole months of Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, March and now April. A LOT of rain. These bushes survived the worst so far and am now going to order more since they did so well for around my pool area. They are bright, soft looking, am very glad I bought them. I have over an acre of back yard I've cleared of Oak and privet upstarts, now my shade trees have been added, I'll make sure I have plenty of these about the yards. I love them and the pugster dwarf bottlebrush are perfect as well

"Sunshine ligustrum" bushes die off rapidly. Need Help! I planted 3 "Sunshine ligustrum" plants...

"Sunshine ligustrum" bushes die off rapidly. Need Help! I planted 3 "Sunshine ligustrum" plants in front of my house last year. They grew fast, looked good and went through the winter well, but this spring all of a sudden they started to die off rapidly. The leaves started dropping from the base and middle of the plants, while new growth continued at the top. Some new leaf growth is still occurring on the top portions of the plants, but at a slow rate and much less quickly than the leaves are dropping. No new leaves appear to be coming back on the lower and middle portion of the plants where they dropped from. I am wondering if anybody has any experience with them and can help.
Asked by: JKB
I planted 2 in the ground but used potting soil to allow them to root more easily. Then have kept well watered every few days. They are planted where they get a lot of sunlight. The 3rd I got to get free shipping I am keeping it in a large pot for now.

I needed these for a full sun area when I purchased them. Not much can grow here with color except succulents and cactus. They were not that great in 113 degrees heat with California mountain winds. I continued to care for them and this first spring has given me a reward for my efforts. If you are in a hard to grow area and have some patience, this one is hardy enough to grow in its first year without being green thumb gardener. It is difficult for me to grow many things in a garden because I only want to water and mulch. Watering more frequent in the middle of the summer desert temperatures is a must for any garden. It helps to add mountain rocks. I added the Paprika Rose (Rosa) Live Shrub next to it at the same time with much more success. See image.
