Japanese Privet is a very popular understory accent
tree that required little care, other than pruning, to maintain
its desired shape. This variety of Ligustrum is very
versatile. When planted in groups, it can be used as a solid
hedge. Planted as a single plant, it can be shaped into a
White fly and sooty mold if planted in the shade and
too close together.
To limit its spreading will require removing the prettiest
part of the tree, its flowers and berries.
