Southern Living® Plant Collection and Sunset® Western Garden Collection to add a unique variety of Ligustrum

‘Sunshine’ Ligustrum is an appealing product available exclusively to Southern Living® Plant Collection and Sunset® Western Garden Collection growers now. 

LOXLEY, Ala. (June 3, 2013) – Get a jump on the latest addition to Southern Living® Plant Collection and Sunset® Western Garden Collection – the ‘Sunshine’ Ligustrum. 

This fast grower is ideal as a low-growing hedge and performs well in full sun and partial shade. Its “sunny” year-round golden foliage creates an eye-catching hedge as well as an individual specimen and will attract buyers for its ability to enhance any landscape. A sterile non blooming cultivar, it will not re-seed into the landscape, benefiting allergy sufferers who cannot tolerate traditional ligustrums.

‘Sunshine’ Ligustrum is characterized by its size (3-4 foot high x 3-4 foot wide) and its hardiness to USDA zone 6. ‘Sunshine’ Ligustrum will be available at retail locations beginning in spring 2014.
