Description

LARGER SPECIMEN, APPROX 2ltr POT 2-3FT HIGH

Native to the UK and Europe and is often included in mixed native hedge mixes to provide evergreen cover in winter or looks great as a specimen. It bears small white flowers in summer, followed by dark purple/black berries. It’s a popular roosting and nesting habitat for birds and its flowers and berries are well used by local wildlife. It’s the main caterpillar food plant of the privet hawk-moth, Sphinx ligustri.

For best results grow Ligustrum vulgare in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Prune back annually to maintain a good shape.

Height 4m x Spread 4m
