Ligustrum japonica 'Variegatum' is a popular ornamental plant known for its striking variegated leaves. This evergreen shrub is a member of the Oleaceae family and is native to Japan and Korea. It is commonly called Variegated Japanese Privet due to its variegated foliage and its genus name 'Ligustrum' which means 'privet' in Latin. The 'Variegatum' variety of Ligustrum japonica typically grows up to 10 feet tall and 6 feet wide in a pyramidal shape. It has dark green leaves with creamy white margins, which make it stand out among other evergreen shrubs. The leaves are oval, glossy, and measure around 2-3 inches in length. During late spring and early summer, the plant produces fragrant white flowers in panicles, which are followed by small black berries in the fall. These berries are poisonous if ingested, so it is important to keep them away from children and pets. This plant is relatively easy to care for and can thrive in a wide range of growing conditions. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It can tolerate drought once established, but it will benefit from regular watering during the growing season. It is also relatively resistant to pests and diseases.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
