I love the Golden Ticket privet. I planted four shrubs, per the distancing suggested by the nursery where I bought the plants: 4' apart. I want a privacy hedge of about 6'. They were planted about 6 months ago. So far there has been good growth, all vertical. The color is beautiful, making a lovely splash in the garden. What I don't know, however, is if horizontal growth will start in the spring, or should I prune then to encourage the shrubs to spread horizontally and begin filling in the 4' spaces. Thanks.
Golden Ticket® Privet Ligustrum x vicaryi
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
A non-invasive Golden Vicary privet!
Privet has long been favored for hedges and screening off air conditioners and other outdoor eye sores. It forms a dense, leafy wall that creates lots of privacy, and clusters of white flowers perfume the air in summer. Unfortunately, the privet that's been used for decades is invasive, making a nuisance of itself in your yard and spreading to natural areas. Golden Ticket® is the first non-invasive privet - it has all of privet's good qualities, and none of the bad ones. High quality, glossy foliage emerges bright yellow and ages to chartreuse. Very adaptable and easy to grow, this deer-resistant shrub is the smart choice for hedging, screening, and landscaping.
Top three reasons to grow Golden Ticket® privet:
- Non-invasive - won't spread
- Bright, glossy gold foliage
- very adaptable, doing well in dry soil and part shade.
