Wax Leaf Privet (Ligustrum japonicum 'Texanum')


Wax Leaf Privet

Ligustrum japonicum 'Texanum'

People love Wax Leaf Privet for its many landscape uses, especially because it’s so adaptable to topiary forms! Thanks to its neat, compact shape, it’s often used in poodle forms or in pyramid forms, where it’s an elegant choice to flank walkways, entryways, and the front door of a home. Ligustrum japonicum 'Texanum' features lush, glossy green foliage and an abundance of fragrant white flowers in spring, so we also love to plant them as an ideal choice for use as a privacy hedge, where it can help screen against unwanted views in style! Homeowners living near busy streets can benefit from its effective sound barrier features, too! Trim into shapes or use as a hedge, it looks exceptional any way you choose to use it!

The Wax Leaf Privet is fast growing and very hardy. It loves to grow in partial to full sun exposures, and once established has low to moderate watering needs, so it’s a very easy care plant that anyone can grow! This Privet can tolerate salt and pollution, so it’s also an excellent choice for SoCal urban conditions as well as adorning landscapes up and down the coast from Coronado to Santa Barbara! We recommend feeding with our Super Charged Moon Juice before new growth begins in the spring to maximize its performance.
