Waxleaf Privet (On Stake)

Ligustrum japonica Texanum

  • Waxleaf Privet is a wonderful shrub for screening property lines or unsightly views.  It will grow up to about 10 feet tall but is typically kept to about 4 to 6 feet in a hedge.  Small white flowers occur in Spring, but most of the time these are not seen because of constant pruning.  Plant about 2.5 feet on center for a nice solid hedge line.  Fire and seaside tolerant.

5 gallon sizes come approx. 3 feet tall.  15 gallon sizes come approx. 4.5-5.5 feet tall with significantly more branching.  These plants come on a stake.

Note:  5 gallon sizes may range from 2.5 to 3.5 feet tall.  15 gallon sizes may range from 4.5 to 5' by 14" wide.  24 inch boxes may come approximately 5 to 6' tall by 20" wide. The growth between a 15 gallon and 24" box is approximately 3 years. Note that a 25 gallon tub may be substituted for a 24" wood box In some cases.

These are averages.  Please inquire if you desire a more specific current height spec.
