Silver Star Ligustrum
Ligustrum japonicum 'Silver Star'
Silver Star Ligustrum is a slow-growing, upright, compact, evergreen shrub with variegated foliage.
Hard prune only during the 'dormant season'. You can safely remove one-third of the oldest, tallest branches on an informally pruned privet to shorten it, leaving you with a new shrub if you repeat the process each year. Poorly pruned or too-tall silver-leaf privet hedges can be cut down nearly to the ground at this time.
Fragrant White Flowers
* Deer Resistant *
