Curly Leaf Ligustrum 
Ligustrum japonicum 'Rotundifolium Coriaceum'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 7b-10b  Find Your Zone

Note:  For our customers who live and garden north of USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 7b, where this Ligustrum is not 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. If brought in, it's best to move it outside on warmer days to get some sun and fresh air. 

Special Characteristics

Curly Leaf Ligustrum is an easy to grow, uniquely shaped shrub with a slow to moderate growth rate. It features shiny, dark green curled leaves with a semi-columnar growth habit. In spring, it produces an abundance of fragrant white flowers in clusters that are flowers appear in spring followed by black, berry-like drupes that are enjoyed by birds. Curly Leaf Ligustrum is ideal for framing entryways or as a small tree form feature plant. 

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright, semi-columnar form 6-8 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide, Curly Leaf Ligustrum is a perfect choice for use as a focal point specimen, in groupings, or as an attracting evergreen flowering hedge just about anywhere in the sunny to partially shaded landscape or home foundation planting. Especially nice to frame a front door or other entryways. Makes an attractive centerpiece in pots, planters and other containers of 12 inches or more in diameter.


Cultural Preferences

Curly Leaf Ligistrum is easy to grow in most any average, moist but well-drained soil and full sun to part shade. We suggest 5 hours or more of direct sun per day. When established, plants are exceptionally drought tolerant requiring little if any supplemental irrigation. That said, an occasional watering will be appreciated during extremely long periods of dry conditions during summer. As with many other ornamental shrubs, a constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic.
