Providing a gorgeous sunny yellow color all year long, all you have to do is shape this wonderful evergreen as needed to maintain the shape you’re looking for from it. Fertilize your Sunshine Ligustrum in the Spring from maximum growth and vitality and enjoy it 365 days a year.

I would like this kind of bush in front of my front porch & all the way across the front of my house but I would want the dwarf kind for that. is it ok where I want to plant them & does it come in a dwarf bush? Thanks
The sunshine ligustrum is not labeled a dwarf but it does not grow as tall as any other ligustrum. It’s perfect for a front yard and to be used as a small to medium hedge.
The sunsine ligustrum thrives in zones 6-10
Is there a dwarf one as I donât want it to get 6 feet tall- just a border.
This plant is very slow growing. Keeping it trimmed once a year would keep it the size you'd like.
