Ligustrum lucidum Excelsum Superbum – Chinese Privet tree 8/10cm girth
Ligustrum lucidum, a small semi-evergreen tree with a rounded habit, yellow-margined bright green leaves bearing white panicle of flowers in late summer. A hardy tree which stays evergreen in sheltered areas. A good choice of screening tree for smaller gardens as it can be clipped to keep small or left to grow out. The heads of these standard trees are designed specifically to sit on top of the fence panel. The height and width of the head will increase as it grows. The stem height on average 1.8-2.0m. Ligustrum lucidum is ideal for creating maximum privacy without encroaching on the rest of your garden. If only one tree is required, it can be strategically placed to screen unsightly views from your property. Awards: RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit)
