Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7a, where this Ligustrum variety is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

Jack Frost Ligustrum is a tough, adaptable and colorful fast-growing evergreen flowering shrub with boldly variegated leaves which makes an excellent natural or clipped formal hedge or attractive small tree. Cone-shape clusters of sweetly fragrant white flowers are produced in abundance during spring followed by clusters of dark bluish-black berries that are enjoyed by the birds. The arrow-shaped, dark green leaves with heavy white variegation are waxy and wavy, providing a nice texture and contrasting color in the landscape. This Ligustrum will grow naturally to 8 feet or so in height and width or can be pruned to control size. Lower branches can be removed to form a highly attractive small evergreen tree.




Landscape & Garden Uses

If you're looking to create a colorful natural or clipped hedge it doesn't get much better than the Jack Frost Ligustrum. Left to grow naturally it will grow to 8 feet or so in height. With occasional pruning it can be maintained as low as 4 feet in height. As this Ligustrum grows taller, lower branches can be removed to form handsome and colorful evergreen flowering tree that serves well as a focal point specimen anywhere in the sunny to partially shaded landscape. Excellent for use in home foundation plantings to frame corners or entryways. Provides excellent contrast when combined with darker leaved plants. A fine addition to fragrance gardens, white theme gardens and the Xeriscape (low water needs).

Suggested Spacing: 4 to 5 feet apart for solid hedges; 12 feet apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Jack Frost Ligustrum is exceptionally easy to grow in most any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. Plants are exceptionally drought tolerant when established and highly resistant to deer, disease, heat, humidity, and insects. No pruning necessary, however can be pruned as a formal hedge or small tree.
