Re: evergreen ligustrum volunteering in my yard - is this it?
Posted by RonDEZone7a on 8/2/2017, 10:39 pm, in reply to "there is some evergreen ligustrum volunteering in my yard "
I have been growing this evergreen privet for years here in Delaware. It was given to me by someone who found it in Philadelphia. It appears to be a strain of Ligustrum japonicum. I was just wondering if this was the plant you were referring to?
My plant is about 6 feet high now. The foliage and stems seem completely hardy most winters (some leaf damage after vortex winters) but it has suffered branch damage from ice and snow loads.
USDA Zone 7a / Sunset zone 32 / Heat zone 6
State Tree: American Holly (Ilex opaca)
