LIGUSTRUM ovalifolium aureum
Golden Privet

A popular alternative to the traditional green variety, Golden Privet has a lot to offer with bright, green foliage, margined and splashed with yellow; creamy-white, summer flowers and glossy, black autumn berries.   Evergreen/semi evergreen, meaning that it is generally evergreen but may lose some or all of its leaves in very hard winters or if planted in strongly exposed or coastal sites.  Easy to maintain and can be grown almost anywhere, making it a firm favourite of the British gardener and a deserving holder of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit.  A useful addition to a wildlife garden, as it provides excellent cover for small birds and hedgehogs.  Responds particularly well to pruning and makes an ideal property boundary providing shelter from winds and reducing noise pollution.  Privet is resistant to pollution and therefore popular in urban and suburban gardens.  Will grow well in all but very wet soils, preferring a position in full sun or partial shade.
