Product details

Important note: If you are receiving your order in April, the trees will have been pruned and therefore the canopy size reduced. This is routine and helps to keep the trees foliage fuller and greener through the rest of the year and winter months. 

Medium trees usually have a clear stem approximately 2-2.1m from ground level, and canopy approximately 80cm-1m. Overall supply height c. 3m. 

This tree has foliage that is long and pointed and a glossy dark green.

In the South of England, it can generally be regarded as an evergreen tree and will only lose its leaves in the harshest of winters.

The white flowers are borne in autumn and are an attractive addition to this mainly utilitarian tree.

Ligustrum japonicum, also known as Japanese Privet, was introduced from its native Japan in 1845 by PF von Siebold and is a tough-performing species that will thrive on most soils, although it is best to avoid very water-logged areas.

Ligustrum japonicum is a superb choice for planting as a raised screen, or stilted hedge, with the crown extending above the fence line and the stems taking up very little space in the garden.

Unlike many other trees, Ligustrum japonicum will tolerate this type of maintenance being performed simply with a hedge trimmer.

Mature height: 3-7m
