Description

Ligustrums are a tried and true group of plants that are treasured for their rapid growth, evergreen leaves, and ease of care. They make a stunning hedge that shines, literally and figuratively. The Howardi Ligustrum is no exception. It stands out with a luscious lemon and lime coloration that just cannot be beat!

The new growth emerges a lovely, lemony yellow and as the leaves age the color gradually deepens into a lavish lime. You will adore the colorful, layered look of the Howardi Ligustrum! The leaves are thick, shiny, and smooth, not prickly like those of a holly. This stellar shrub is dense and lush. No peeking through this shrub! In summer enjoy subtle, delicate, white fragrant flowers. As the flowers fade they are replaced by deep bluish to black berries. The Howardi Ligustrum will attract birds and butterflies alike.

Ligustrums are extremely easy to grow. They are pest and disease resistant and deer and drought tolerant. Full sun will you provide the richest color, but these plants will grow well in some shade too. These plants are adaptable to just about any soil. Plant in zones 7-10 for best results.

If you are looking for the reliability of the ligustrum, but want something a little different the Howardi Ligustrum is just what you are looking for!

How To Care

Plant your Howardi Ligustrum in full to partial sun. Ligustrum are extremely adaptable to just about any soil. However, avoid areas with standing water or constantly saturated soil. This condition promotes disease. Also known as Privets, Ligustrum grow in warmer planting zones, 7 to 10. These shrub trees are pest and disease resistant and once established are maintenance free! Remember to always keep your plants fertilized with a high quality, slow release fertilizer. We have our own custom blend made to give your new plants the best start! Fertilize Ligustrum when planting, in early spring and, again, in late summer or early fall. Water your ligustrum deeply upon planting and once or twice weekly while establishing their root systems. Once established, Ligustrum are quite drought tolerant. You will only need to water during extremely dry periods. Ligustrum can withstand heavy pruning, but don't require it. Prune any time of the year.

The Howardi Ligustrum is pest and disease resistant and once established is virtually maintenance free! Ligustrums are drought, heat, pollution, and deer tolerant.

Love these little trees

Already gave a review but since they are asking for another here goes. These little 3 gallon trees are beautiful. They all came healthy and glowing. I initially ordered4 then went on to order 5 more for a privacy hedge. I have planted them all and they look beautiful. Packaging was 10 plus. They really package with care. Love them and they are thriving.

Beautiful little trees

I initially ordered 4 of these to create a privacy hedge in my back yard. I was completely shocked because I ordered them one day and they were here the next day by Fedex. They really take great care in packaging the trees. Packaging was awesome. The little 3 gallon trees looked healthy and beautiful so I planted them to find out I needed 5 more. I ordered 5 more on a Sunday and they processed my order Monday and the trees were here Tuesday again great packaging and all 5 trees were healthy and beautiful. They are all planted and Mother Nature has been watering them here in NC. Their prices are affordable as well. I encourage you if you want good trees and fast delivery with care then this is the place to order them. The soil in the 3 gallon pot was good healthy soil and moist to nourish the trees until they arrived. Very pleased with this company and will only order from them from now on.
