Howard's Variegated Waxleaf Ligustrum

Regular price $20.00 Sale

Ligustrum lucidum 'Howardii'

The leaves of Howard's Variegated Waxleaf Privet have deep green centers with yellow edges. When new foliage is exposed to full sunlight, its variegation is brightest yellow. It then gradually fades to green as leaves mature.

This privet is excellent for contrast planting with darker evergreens, also alone in hedges or screens up to 10' height.
