The Waxleaf Ligustrum is a large multi-stemmed, broadleaf evergreen shrub that maintains a very dense, symmetrical and rounded canopy. Uses in the landscape range from large shrubs, privacy hedges (when mass planted), or use as an evergreen ornamental tree. Waxleaf Ligustrums have 2 to 3 inch long leaves that are stiff and leathery with a glossy deep green color on top and a lighter silver-gray color underside. Large clusters of white flowers will bloom from mid-summer to autumn. Each cluster that is produced has hundreds of white flowers and each cluster can range from 6-12 inches long. In the summer Waxleaf Ligustrums produce small green berries that turn blue to purple-black in the fall. Once established, it is drought tolerant and has a medium salt tolerance. The growth rate is approximately 2 feet per year; at maturity they can reach a height and width between 10-15+ feet.
The Wax Leaf Ligustrum can be grown as either a tree or a shrub. When grown as a shrub, this evergreen is a great solution for small areas with restricted space requirements. They react well to pruning, making it easy to manipulate the plant’s shape. They are equally beautiful if they are allowed to maintain their natural growth form with minimal pruning.
Ligustrum are tough enough to adapt to most soil types, resist most pests, and withstand moderate drought and salt. They boast dark green, lustrous foliage with an aromatic flower display in late spring or early summer.
Ligustrum produce fleshy, oval, purple-black fruit. In Spring and Summer, they flower with showy clusters of off white, trumpet-shaped blooms.
They may be grown as as a containerized planting, a buffer strip or tall formal hedge, a topiary, rock garden planting, seashore planting, foundation planting for large buildings, highway medians, or landscape specimen.
Ligustrum earn their popularity with their ability to thrive in multiple environmental conditions, accommodate diverse space requirements, and their exceptional aesthetic appeal across many applications.
