Sunshine Ligustrum, Sunshine Privet
Plant 3′-4′ apart. Dig hole twice the width of the pot and no deeper so the new plant will sit 2″-3″ above surrounding soil after backfilled. Water well and mulch the area. Water twice weekly or as needed until established, then the plant is water-wise and drought tolerant.
No special care at all. This plant is tough. If the interior of the plant seems to be losing leaves, give it a deep watering.
None required, but if plant is in a container, it can be fertilized in the spring with an all purpose balanced, slow release fertilizer.
Prune as needed to maintain compact stature, or leave it to grow with abandon. It can be kept to a little two foot hedge, a cone-shaped shrub, or free form. One noticeable feature of pruning or not is that the outside leaves of the plant will be bright yellow green, but just underneath the top layer the leaves are all green.
Very pest and disease resistant.
