Product details

This tree has foliage similar to Ligustrum japonicum and lucidum; long and pointed leaves which have golden margins framing them.

In the milder areas of the Southern UK, Ligustrum lucidum Excelsum Superbum is considered to be an evergreen specimen and will only lose its leaves in the harshest of winters.

In autumn time, it bears creamy white flowers which are displayed in clusters and are a welcome addition to this largely functional tree.

Ligustrum lucidum Excelsum Superbum is a tough performing tree that will thrive on most soils, although it is best to avoid water logged areas. Like its green counterpart, this Chinese Privet is a good choice for planting as a hedge.

We grow Ligustrum lucidum Excelsum Superbum as a full standard and as a bush.

A super selection for restricted spaces, Chinese Privet can be planted very close to buildings with confidence and as such is compliant with the building regulation code.

Regular trimming is recommended to maintain shape and prevent the tree from becoming too woody. Pruning is best understaken in late spring/early summer, after the last frost and ideally before the end of July, so all new growth has a chance to harden off before the winter. 

Unlike many other trees Ligustrum japonicum (privet) tree will tolerate this type of maintenance being performed simply with a hedge trimmer and is therefore a perfect tree for novices!
